Depression Years 1930s USA : a Photo Album

Statesmen, scholars and philosophers can only explicate so much.

Indeed, a picture expresses more than a thousand words.

I found this on Flickr a while ago. It's a Library of Congress' collection of photos from the 30s and 40s. It's over 1,500 photos and you can spend an endless amount of time looking at them.

I guess not all are Depression themed, but it's fascinating nonetheless.
