There are few images as deeply ingrained in the national consciousness as Migrant Mother. Yet for decades, no one knew what had become of this woman and her family.

During our visit to Kansas City’s The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art Antiques Roadshow took a closer look at the woman and family behind the famous photograph:

Had ourselves a brief but riveting game of badminton before heading off to Joplin this afternoon. But really, Kansas City, you have refreshed us. So thankful for a peaceful night’s rest and hearty breakfast at The Southmoreland Inn, and time to be renewed by some inspiring works in the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. #LowlandCollection2015 #kansascity #nelsonatkinsmuseum #thankful #badminton (at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art)
