Mrs. Soper draws some water for her youngest child, in this depression era photo taken in the Willow Creek area of Malheur County. Like many other families, the Sopers came to Oregon from Montana to begin a new life. They lived in a small dugout home, mostly below ground. However, unlike some new arrivals, they had a good well and did not need to haul their drinking water from town.
