A mother and children rest as they and over 40 men, women and children camp out at City Hall in St. Louis, Mo., April 29, 1936. When a St. Louis alderman took no action to increase relief appropriations, protesters descended upon City Hall and threatened to stay “‘til hell freezes over or we get relief.” They started their second day in the building today.
