Higgins, Floyd Halleck, 1886-1975, Photographer
"In the dining room, a pair of Mexican hand ball players relax at Pleasanton, California over hot Mexican food cooked and
served by Mexicans at a beet field labor camp. Better housing, better food, electric lights, clean dry and warm sleeping quarters,
buses to mass on Sunday, trips to night baseball games, and night schools, where wanted, are some of the Good Neighbor innovations
for Mexican workers announced by Manager J.E. Coke of California Fields Crops, Inc. in handling 3,000 imported Mexicans arriving
to harvest the record beet crop in California this fall ." Description by Hal Higgins
