Description

An exhibit of 38 photographs taken by five exiled Spaniards known collectively as the 'Mayo Brothers,' during the Bracero Program, the guest worker program to the United States from 1942-1964. The photos eloquently portray the Mexican workers as they signed up for the program and said farewell to their families and friends at the Mexico City train station.
