What attracted me to this was that it reminded me of a black Rockwell. I don't think he did a lot of images with black people, mostly white. But the set up feels Rockwell like. Mostly this is an image of migrant workers and their families getting a health check.
It looks like it was raining recently, the kids all seem to have mud on their legs. Kids in those days never really wore shoes any where, I guess they out grew them so fast. And they were probably hard to get with the war taking away materials from everything.
You can sort of guess what kids belongs to what mother, as some of the kids have a little pony tail, like that one mother has.
