A girl hitchhiking.[1]

Hitchhiking was when someone stood on the side of a road and pointed their thumb in the direction they were traveling, in the hopes that someone in an automobile passing in that direction would pick them up and give them a ride to wherever it was they were going.

The activity was usually looked at in a negative light, due to the fact that people that picked up hitchhikers were strangers, and they could have been dangerous people.[2]
