He was invited back later and met the youngest boy as a grown man walking in the same area. It is an amazing transition.
    I'm always interested in any anecdotes from that region and era. My mother was a young child during all this in Gray County, Kansas.

    From all accounts I've heard, Mr. Rothstein's experience on that day was pretty typical. There was no way of warning residents about the formation and approach of the dust storms, save seeing them approach. And, despite popular legend, a lot of families stuck it out and stayed as this family did.

    I bought a print of it years ago and it hangs in my new studio. Can you still purchase prints from LOC or just a digital file?

    Buying a copy of Rothstein's photo

    If you go to the FSA section of the Library of Congress, you will find information about buying photographs.

    Wow. That's amazing.

    Seems odd that the older man is running ahead of the small child, doesn't it? Just a thought... neither here nor there.
