The above picture might be what you think of when you hear (if you're as old as me you knew the word), Hobo. Wikipedia defines Hobo as a migratory worker, a homeless vagabond. They believe the word started to be used in the Northwestern part of the United States around 1890. The origin of the word is dispute/has many possibilities vs is unknown. A Hobo travel to find work, had no permanent address. The typically "Road the Rails" to move from one community to another.
There were some notables who Hoboed before they made it, such as: Woody Guthrie, Robert Mitchum, Carl Sandberg and George Orwell; but..........for most it was a tough life. Perhaps it was easier to be a Hobo then compared to being Homeless now. Somehow I think so, towns are bigger, there are fewer families farms where you might work a day, or receive a meal, or be allowed to camp awhile.
The face of Homeless seems more wretched to me, filled with more despair and danger.
