During the Great Depression, the Farm Security Administration sent photographers around the country to document the living and working conditions of Americans in farms, factories, cities and villages

In 1938, FSA photographer Ben Shahn traveled to the small town of London, Ohio, 25 miles southwest of the state capital Columbus.

There, he captured residents of the sleepy 4,600-person town as they walked the few main streets on a quiet Saturday afternoon.
