Girl sitting alone in the Sea Grill, waiting for a pickup, Washington DC, April 1943. 'I come in here pretty often, sometimes alone, mostly with another girl, we drink beer, and talk, and of course we keep our eyes open. You'd be surprised at how often nice, lonesome soldiers ask Sue, the waitres to introduce them to us.' Photograph taken by Esther Bubley when working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and the Office of War Administration (OWI). Together they produced some of the most remarkable social documentary photographs of the 20th century, from 1935-1944.
