Black Migrants to Chicago, 1922

Searching for the source of this photo I discovered that it is quite famous and appears in just about every article on the "Great Migration" of Southern blacks to Northern cities. But I don't remember ever having seen it before today so I'm betting many of my readers haven't, either. I found it on the Chicago Time Machine, which is a very cool site for anyone interested in Chicago or American history.
