Lots of neat, old images found @ Shorpy
I’ve always been fascinated by Depression Era history and images. I wonder–what would become of America if the same economic storm happened today?
Also worth checking out is the Studs Terkel series “Hard Times”– a collection of interviews with survivors of the Great Depression. I first heard a recording from this work two years ago on This American Life and was completely entranced by the stories of perseverance and compassion found in the midst of such hardship.
