"Newly-arrived replacements at CCC Camp, TVA #22, near Esco, Tennessee, lined up before their first meal in camp..." 11/17/1933. Lewis Hine, Photographer (National Archives Identifier: 532780); Series: Lewis Hine Photographs for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), 1933; Records of the Tennessee Valley Authority, 1918 - 2000; Record Group 142; National Archives.

In 1933, after submitting an outline for an introductory photographic survey of Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) projects, Lewis W. Hine was hired to do a one month assignment in East Tennessee. This photo of Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers was taken November 17, 1933. Hine’s caption reads:
"Newly-arrived replacements at CCC Camp, TVA #22, near Esco, Tennessee, lined up before their first meal in camp. The boys arrived at New Tazewell on November 17, 1933, in day coaches form New York, tired and hungry, but eager for their new life. For many of these boys, this was their first time away from home."
