A repeat post from January 2014. . .
“James F. Drigger’s farmhouse. Coffee County, Alabama,” August 1941, by John Collier, via Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
The large plants in front of the vines and along the walk are Ricinus communis or castor beans.
They and the flowers make a nice approach to the lined-up open front and back doors.
John Collier was working for the Farm Security Administration when he took this photo. The Drigger family was receiving assistance to raise chickens under the “Food for Defense” program.

Think I missed this first time around. Love how mysterious it seems. And I am continuing to enjoy the Documerica images.
It’s mysterious, but also rather elegant.
