This picture is showing when the Robinson family left Opportunity, Holt County, NE from the Gould farm where Alice and Dick were born and moved eastward to Dorsey, Holt County, NE where Shirley and Betty were born. Dorsey today has a population of roughly 30 and is located along the Niobrara River in NE Nebraska. With Dick appearing about 1 year old, this places the date during the summer/fall of 1930. This was the era of the Great Depression which started September 1929 through 1938 which indicates that the Robinson family left looking for work. Lydia’s memories state that they moved from Ainsworth to O’Neill, NE which ties to the above account.

It is known that Dallas retired from the Union Pacific Railroad and worked as a brakeman during the Great Depression.

The closest rail to Dorsey was the Nebraska Northeastern Railway (NENE) which only ran to O’Neill, NE from South Sioux City, NE primarily hauling grain which may be the reason that Dallas was away from home for long periods and why Lydia was unable to deal with raising four children mostly by herself during the depression yeas, as the reason she left her family behind.

L-R: Dallas Robinson, Dickie Robinson (in his dad's arms), Alice Robinson (child), Lydia (Gould) Robinson, Dora (Gould) Muir, Noel Gould, Unknown boy, Carrie (Kendall) Gould.

Thank you Jerome Sander for putting this photo into the context of history and its location.
