Well-To-Do Miner: 1938

Photographer's description from 1938: "A more well-to-do miner listening to the radio when he returns home in the morning after working on the night shift. He is Polish, his wife Hungarian. These "foreigners" are generally thrifties and their houses are cleaner than the Negros or "Americans." Westover, West Virginia." Marion Post Wolcott, photographer.
