This one goes out to all house-husbands. Migratory Mexican field worker's home on the edge of a frozen pea field, Imperial valley California 1937 [I thought frozen peas was a modern invention?]. Photograph by Dorothea Lange. BP

Thanks for including this. It's good to leaven the moto porn with something earthy from time to time.

As an ex-house husband I can relate to this. The Selvedge Yard did an excellent Dorothea Lange story in June '09.

What's the car? Is it hot rodders favourite 32 Ford?
