Vachon photographed this group of predominately black picketers protesting high rents and low wages outside the Mid-City Realty office. Vachon's 1942 pictures are apparently the only records of overt militancy in the Farm Security Administration/Office of War information's (FSA/OWI) Chicago coverage.
