Photographs of revolutions, accidents, or speeches all fall under that same style, as we could tell from

the picture what went on because it simply was taken in order to let others be aware of what was happening during that period.

For example, lining up the characters in the picture may strengthen the message

However, when production was discouraged, the tenant farmers and small holders suffered most by not being able to ship enough to market to pay rents.

Initially created as the Resettlement Administration (RA) in 1935 as part of the New Deal in the United States, the '''Farm Security Administration''' ('''FSA''') was an effort during the Depression to combat American rural poverty. last Gabbert first Jim title Resettlement Administration encyclopedia Encyclopedia of Oklahoma History & Culture publisher Oklahoma Historical Society accessdate 2013-09-01 url http: digital.library.okstate.edu encyclopedia entries R RE032.html

The FSA stressed "rural rehabilitation" efforts to improve the lifestyle of sharecroppers, tenants, very poor landowning farmers, and a program to purchase submarginal land owned by poor farmers and resettle them in group farms on land more suitable for efficient farming. Critics, including the Farm Bureau, strongly opposed the FSA as an experiment in collectivizing agriculture (Collective farming) — that is, in bringing farmers together to work on large government-owned farms using modern techniques under the supervision of experts. After the Conservative coalition took control of Congress it transformed the FSA into a program to help poor farmers buy land, and that program continues to operate in the 21st century as the '''Farmers Home Administration.'''
