Caption pasted on rear: 'AP Newsfeatures Photo. Please credit. (For use Sunday, May 9, with APN Photo, Essay on California's migrant workers. Photos by Bob Shumway of the Long Beach Independent Press Telegram). Children of the Sun. Children of migrant farm workers, who follow their nomadic parents from place to place, pose for the photograph before a migrant camp in California. Their homes are the autos or trucks they travel in or, for the more fortunate, a tent. One father said about one of his recent jobs, 'I had to pick five trees to get one box of lemons. They were paying 18 cents a box. I picked nine boxes in eight hours. How do you feed a family on that kind of money?' 4/8/65'.
