Almost everything I love in one pic - Charlie (my Cavalier-Sloth mix 😂) my pillow-ticking bed spread, & grandma’s tin of old buttons (she was a seamstress and lived through the great depression, so she saved everything, thankfully). #Cavalier #KingCharlesCavalier #DogsOfInstagram #OldTins #Buttons #TheGreatDepression #Blackandwhite #Neutrals #OldIsEverything #imissmygrandma

I've got to finally finish this one. It's not that it's a bad book; it's just one of those tragic stories where you know circumstances aren't going to get better. This kind of apprehension is skillfully rendered by Steinbeck. For those of you who know what this is about - I'm wondering what changed in America around the beginning of the 20th century. How did the US go from a land of opportunity (where legend had it that hard work paid off), to a place where shadowy entities (banks? the elite?) own and control everything? Was it something to do with the Federal Reserve? I'll have to look into it. #book #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #currentlyreading #amreading #thegrapesofwrath #johnsteinbeck #classicliterature #americanliterature #bibliophile #booknerd #booklover #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaholic #tbr #bookish #igreads #readcritically #questioneverything #thegreatdepression
Granddad and Dad after Dad's graduation from McCosh Elementary School, ca 1938. They're pretty well turned out for The Great Depression - can't help wondering if Granddad's expression isn't related to his being divorced from Grandmother, the apparent photographer. He died when I was five, so I don't remember him. Mother wrote me in response to my asking about him that he was very self-sufficient, felt no one could clean his house better than he. He was small, but apparently strong; he was a railroad mechanic, and left behind tools I could barely lift as a child. McCosh (now Emmett Till) was in the historically black enclave of West Woodlawn, a BRONZEVILLE "Strivers' Row". I went there for several years, and had some of the same teachers Dad had. #BRONZEVILLE #blackamerica #greatmigration #jamescmccosh #dad #granddad #graduation #thegreatdepression #westwoodlawn

As I was growing up I watched my grandparents handle their money regularly. They grew up during the Depression & the War. They were extremely frugal people, not because they didn’t have money, but because they grew up in a time where you didn’t waste, you saved your money, and were grateful for what you did have. Amongst the many money lessons I learned from them, the “Cash Tin System” has been a big influence to me in my life. Each Wednesday after work they would pool their wages at the kitchen table and pop a certain amount into little medical and hairpin tins they had recycled. Each tin represented Utilities, Bills, Groceries, The House, Holidays, Mortgage, Christmas & Gifts etc. They also made sure they each had a small spending kitty each. Through common sense they knew it was good for their finances and their marriage to have a weekly meeting, divvy up the weekly wage and provide for tomorrow. I am so grateful I saw them working together with their money. I am grateful I asked Grandma why she had different little purses in her bag to keep track of her different “accounts”. I’m grateful for the lessons they taught me and they weren’t aware they were even teaching me. ❤️❤️❤️❤️ . #moneymanagement #cashenvelopes #frugalliving #everycentcounts #debtfreecommunity #grandparentsarethebest #imissmygrandparents #moneysaving #grateful #recycle #minimalwaste #zerowaste #thrifty #thegreatdepression #commonsense #daveramseywouldbeproud #debtfreecommunity
Art Deco April Day Seventeen - Crisis and Disaster Part of a photo story done by myself and my housemate depicting the anguish of those affected by the Dustbowl in America in the 1930s. We were influenced by the seminal work of the photographers of the Farm Security Administration such as Dorothea Lange. I highly recommend the book 'The Worst Hard Time' by Timothy Egan on this subject, how the situation developed and the dramatic descriptions of the hardships that followed. #artdecoapril #worsthardtime #thegreatdepression
NRA (1933-1935) tagged American (Oklahoma) sport coat, belted back, bellow/envelope pockets. The very height of sportiness!

I am purging A TON of my fabric but there are some collections that I just can't part with...like my stash of the 1930's feed sacks. Not familiar with feed sacks? Here's a history of them from mequiltshoppe.com: Feed sacks bring to mind poverty of the Great Depression but at the same time there is a romance to the idea that women could make something beautiful from something so mundane. In truth feed sacks were used for sewing well before the depressions and for several years after. The evolution of the feed sack is a story of ingenuity and clever marketing. From Barrels to Feed sacks Initially farm and food products were shipped in barrels. The feed sack story starts in the early 1800’s, when goods such as food staples, grain, seed, and animal feed were packed for transportation and storage in tins, boxes, and wooden barrels. This was not an ideal method of storage as tin would rust and the hand made boxes and barrels leaked and were damaged easily. They were bulky, heavy and difficult to transport. Between 1840 and 1890 cotton sacks gradually replaced barrels as food containers. In 1846 the invention of the “stitching machine” made it possible to sew double locking seams strong enough to hold the contents of a bag. Feed sacks were initially made of heavy canvas, and were used to obtain flour, sugar, meal, grain, salt and feed from the mills. They were reusable, with the farmer bringing an empty sack stamped with his mark or brand to the mill to be filled. This changed when the North East mills began weaving inexpensive cotton fabric in the late 1800’s. Feed sacks (or feedbags) were initially printed on plain white cloth and in sizes that corresponded to barrel sizes. For example, a one barrel bag held 196 pounds of flour. A 1/8 barrel bag only held 14 pounds. The brand name of the flour was simply printed on the side of the bag. Many of the logos on the flour sacks were circular, a legacy from the time when these logos had to fit on the top of a barrel. Women quickly discovered that these bags could be used as fabric for quilts and other needs.

@bmhs_dramalab We're all dorks and nerds and conspiracy theorists who find some weird solace by getting on stage with absolutely no idea what will happen next. We created something special. A world that exists in only a moment, a series of inside jokes between us and an audience. And all I can say is that I love you all. #Chad #TheGreatDepression #Improv

PAPER MOON (1973) 🇺🇸
The Great Depression #TheGreatDepression  was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the #UnitedStates . The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late- 1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most wide spread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the #worldeconomy can decline. The Great Depression started in the United States after a major fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929, and became worldwide news with the #stockmarket crash of October 29, 1929 (known as #BlackTuesday ). Between 1929 and 1932, worldwide gross domestic product (GDP) fell by an estimated 15%. By comparison, worldwide #GDP fell by less than 1% from 2008 to 2009 during #TheGreatRecession . Some economies started to recover by the mid-1930s. However, in many countries, the negative effects of the Great Depression lasted until the beginning of #WorldWarII . The Great Depression had devastating effects in countries both rich and  poor. Personal income, #taxrevenue , profits and prices dropped, while #internationaltrade plunged by more than 50%. Unemployment in the U.S. rose to 25% and in some countries rose as high as 33%.

America created Public Housing with the intent to keep Black and Hispanic people in one location back in the 30s. They wanted segregation and FDR and his “New Deal” made it a reality. #publichousing #nycha #segregation #hispanic #black #housing #theprojects #thepjs #fdr #newdeal #mshda #aha #thegreatdepression #policy #detroitbrewsterdouglasstowers #capehartact #nationalhousingact #slumclearance #catherinebauerwurster #robertfwagner #stewartmcdonald #the #GreatDepression henrybsteagall #federalhousingact
I absolutely hate the movie Annie and would have been perfectly fine if it had been nothing but #carolburnette as #misshannigan half in the bag for 2 hours.

April 11, 1931. 87 years ago. The Empire State Building is completed. After construction began on the tower only a little over a year prior, the Empire State Building was topped off in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. At 1,472 feet tall (102 stories) it becomes the world's tallest building, beating the 77-story Chrysler Building, a few blocks east of the tower which was topped out in 1929. The Empire State Building remained the world's tallest building for 40 years until 1971, when it was surpassed by the Twin World Trade Centre's in Lower Manhattan. The Empire State Building officially opened on May.1/1931. #empirestate #empirestatebuilding #newyork #nyc #newyorkcity #ny #manhattan #bigapple #tower #skyscraper #1930s #30s #thegreatdepression #thedirtythirties #1931
This collage is hung in my home in Garfield. The house was built in the 30's and the attic looks very similar to the last photo. There are several different colors and sizes of boards assembled to create the structure. There is also still some bits of very old crumpled up newspaper that was used as insulation. These are just a few delicate pieces that were able to be saved. ... #ronelliottstudio #thegreatdepression #home #architecture #interiordesign #landscapedesign #design #moderndesign #azarchitecture #azinteriordesign #azdesigner #azsmallbusiness #designinspiration #homeinspiration #creativedesign #designlovers #garfieldhistoricdistrict #dtphx #downtownphx #phoenix #phoenixaz #arizona
The roof structure of a 1930's building in Garfield. When you think of a historic building constructed in the 1930's you may forget that it was built during one of the hardest economic times in our recent history, the Great Depression. Life didn't stop, people didn't stop building, but for many it meant being more creative with what they were building with. In this case, it meant building a home with scraps and pieces from other old homes. ... #ronelliottstudio #adaptivereuse #thegreatdepression #architecture #interiordesign #landscapedesign #design #moderndesign #azarchitecture #azinteriordesign #azdesigner #azsmallbusiness #designinspiration #homeinspiration #creativedesign #designlovers #garfieldhistoricdistrict #dtphx #downtownphx #phoenix #phoenixaz #arizona

**IF YOU DONT KNOW YESTERDAY'S HISTORY; YOU CANT PLAN FOR TODAY TO MAKE A FUTURE FOR TOMORROW .... THIS BOOK IS A 2016 Reprint of 1962 Edition.** Reprint of the first edition of this landmark title. The black experience in America—starting from its origins in western Africa up to 1961—is examined in this seminal study from a prominent African American figure. The entire historical timeline of African Americans is addressed, from the Colonial period through the civil rights upheavals of the late 1950s to 1961, the time of publication. “#BeforeTheMayflower ” grew out of a series of articles Bennett published in #EbonyMagazine regarding "the trials and triumphs of a group of Americans whose roots in the American soil are deeper than the roots of the Puritans who arrived on the celebrated Mayflower a year after a 'Dutch man of war' deposited twenty Negroes at Jamestown." IT provides a solid synthesis of current historical research and a lively writing style that makes it accessible and engaging reading. -- After discussing the contributions of Africans to the ancient world, “Before the Mayflower” tells the history of "the other Americans," how they came to America, and what happened to them when they got here. The book is comprehensive and detailed, providing little-known and often overlooked facts about the lives of black folks through slavery, Reconstruction, America's wars, #TheGreatDepression , and the #CivilRightsMovement . The book includes a useful time line and some fascinating archival images. ⚫ We have free shipping for purchases over $100 and other bundle deals and will also put in an extra book or two for FREE !!!!!! #DTR360Books 📚💯💪🏿🖤🌌 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ➡ CHECK OUT MY WEBSITE FOR MOOR BOOKS AND HATS www.DTR360BOOKS.com LINK IS IN MY BIO ⬅ -- #KwameTure #DrHueyPNewton #MalcolmX #ProfJamesSmall #JohnGJackson #JohnHenrikClarke #TheNegro #HiddenColors4   #DoForSelf #BlackAndProud #BlackHistoryYear #BlackAuthors #BlackBooks #MarcusGarvey #BlackStudies #LeroneBennettJr
