Американская мечта
Это документальная фотография, сделанная 4 августа 1948 года в Чикаго, штат Иллинойс.

“A big "For Sale" sign in a Chicago yard mutely tells the tragic story of Mr. and Mrs. Ray Chalifoux, who face eviction from their apartment. With no place to turn, the jobless coal truck driver and his wife decide to sell their four children. Mrs. Lucille Chalifoux turns her head from camera above while her children stare wonderingly. On the top step are Lana, 6, and Rae, 5. Below are Milton, 4, and Sue Ellen, 2.”

К 1950-му году их таки распродали. Например, Rae Chalifox - за два доллара.
