[Great closeup pictures of cotton pickers 1938] as they waited in the fields for cotton to be weighed

Cotton was a major commodity for the Lake Dick Project Community, Arkansas in 1938. The fields were so extensive that day laborers had to be employed to pick the cotton.

The bags of cotton picked by each laborer was weighed and recorded in the fields as seen by the photographs below taken in September and October 1938 by photographer Russell Lee.
