The Maddox Brothers and Rose, immediately after they migrated from Alabama to California in 1933 (Kenneth, aka "Don Juan" Maddox, on the right, age 11 years in this photo). At this time they joined hundreds of other depression-era families who lived in abandoned drainage pipes in what was called "Pipe City" in Oakland, CA.
