"The Depression Breadline" by George Segal is one of the most popular sculptures at the Grounds for Sculpture. These five stoic men have stood in line, waiting endlessly for the door to open so they can get some free soup and bread. The first two images show them in summer and in winter. Since it is life-sized, many visitors love to line up their friends and family members to have their portraits taken while standing in line. Some line up in front, others choose the rear.

The Breadline in summer And in winter Some choose the front Others choose the rear
