When I was about eleven I was in the car with my mother's father and we noted a person going through my small town with a suitcase in hand. Grandpa looked over to me and remarked, "There goes one of Hoover's Tourists." Grandpa then briefly explained the Great Depression and all those out of work and many who (like this person) became transients. Today in traffic I saw a man with a backpack and he appeared distressed. In his hand was a sign reading "CHAS. W.Va." Of late I have noticed an increase of people walking with pull-along bags and/or backpacks traveling through my area. I feel in the last six months displaced people have increased in number.
