March 1937. Scotts Run, West Virginia. “Employed bachelor coal miner at home in Sessa Hill. This scene is typical of hundreds of bachelors who belong to a group of immigrants whose family was separated by immigration restrictions. This man may, or may not, have a wife in another country.” Photograph by Lewis Wickes Hine. Large format acetate negative.
