Description
C. Dudley Adams, who works by day as an insurance salesman, is shown working in some of his spare time in his prize vegetable garden on the federal government's small farm homestead project at El Monte. This garden supplied him, his wife and child with all their vegetables all winter. The project is designed to reduce the cost of living for low-salaried workers and their families by providing inexpensive housing outside the city high rent areas and giving the househoulders ground on which to raise foods. Photo date: March 6, 1936.
