Choose oneof the four following images and, inan informal essay formatof 150-200 words, analyze what you see in the image and what the image tells you about the time period/social problems of the time.

Questions to consider:
- Describe what you see in the photograph and the compositional elements that stand out to you.
- Explain what you think is the most important part of this image is and what you think the photographer is trying to show in the image.
- Discuss your understanding of the time period based on what you see in the image.
