Signs of the Times

Two lawn signs. Same house. Hatfield, Massachusetts. May 2016. When I saw them I said, Stop! We have to get a shot of this.

A woman opened the front door with her toddler as we pulled over to take the photo. Told us her husband was Trump. She Bernie. Asked us if we thought they’d still be married after the election.

Turned out Bernie got aced out by Hillary at the Convention that year. Will it be different in 2020? Horizontal class structure. Not vertical political parties. A rural New England couple seems to have forecasted what was coming in this country.
