EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by Dorothea Lange captures the bustling transportation scene between New York City and Jersey in 1939. The image showcases the enduring significance of ferry boats as a means of transporting traffic across the Hudson River during this era. Intriguingly, the photograph highlights separate areas designated for men and women on these ferry boats, providing a glimpse into societal norms of that time. This subtle detail adds depth to our understanding of gender dynamics in early 20th century America. Lange's masterful composition draws attention to the convergence of various elements within the frame. The presence of automobiles, both cars and lorries, emphasizes the growing importance of private transportation during this period. Meanwhile, railway tracks visible in the background remind us that public transport played an equally vital role in connecting communities. The photo serves as a poignant reminder of America's economic struggles during the Great Depression. Lange was renowned for her work with Farm Security Administration (FSA) documenting rural poverty, but here she turns her lens towards urban infrastructure affected by recession. Preserved within this image is not just a historical record but also a testament to Lange's ability to capture moments that transcend time. As we gaze upon this snapshot from nearly a century ago, we are transported back to an era when ferry boats were essential lifelines bridging two vibrant cities on either side of the Hudson River - New York City and Jersey
