Freewheelers “The Ghost of Tom Joad” Tee (Deadstock)

Here is a another piece from Freewheelers "Giants Of The Dead" collection. Different from Mr. Hemming of "The Lost Generation", Tom Joad is a fictional character from the John Steinbeck's 1939 novel The Grapes of Wrath. The novel talks about the struggling life of American farmers during the post Great Depression era. The main character - Tom Joad is a paroled young man who struggled for his family to make a living. The phrase "The Ghost of Tom Joad" comes from a Bruce Springsteen's song which Tom Joad was mentioned as a symbol of fighting against the ruthlessness of capitalism.
