Working on this for my design class. The theme is the Great Depression. We were told to create something, anything to memorialize, remember, tell a story, whatever, around the Great depression. After talking with my grandmother and some other folks, these are the things I took away..
it was a time of great uncertainty, families became disjointed, what was, vanished, But there was still beauty and joy, it was just a little harder to find and everything felt less free, due to monetary restrictions.
This is just a piece of the depression, and obviously doesn't encompass every person's experience, some worse, some better.
Just like our current situation.
