1930s Denim Chore Jacket
Dust storms. Drought. Poverty. Unemployment.
Things were bleak in the “dirty 30s.” But, as in most times of struggle, there were glimpses (sometimes) of what makes the human spirit what it is. Of course, it took leadership, dignity, and a lot of hard work.
The stock market crash of 1929 didn’t destroy America in a punctual fashion. It took time. After all, most Americans weren’t invested in the stock market—certainly not the farmers, ranchers, or laborers who inhabited the heartland. But eventually, even they felt its wrath.
The ones who stayed raised and grew their own food. Many had no electricity or running water. Government programs were put in place to assist (andmany did). You helped your neighbor through the hardship. The fun you had didn’t cost anything (you couldn’t afford it if it did).
Men and women worked hard to sustain a life that was, in many respects, difficult, but in others, the seeds of a better tomorrow.
