carrying water at Gee's Bend

After seeing the Quilts of Gee's Bend Exhibit when it came to the de Young Museum in San Francisco, summer 2007, I was inspired by a black and white photo by Arthur Rothstein of Annie Pettway Bendolph carrying water at Gee's Bend, Alabama in April 1937.

Arthur Rothstein was a photographer working for the Farm Securities Administration during the Great Depression and the early 1900s.
