  • The Great Depression 1929-1939
  • I know honey.
  • Made by Allen Nguyen
  • We have no more money! We used to be rich!
  • Farmers Struggle
  • Man! Did a drought happen here? Because this dirt looks like dust, and these crops aren't growing me ANY profit...
  • Papa, Mamma, what's wrong with our field?
  • I can't make bread from this!
  • This house, dress, food, and all of my favorite accessories only for $250 per week, and I just have to get the bank to pay for it all! What could go wrong?!
  • People Borrowing Too Much
  • Wow, only a dollar per week for this suit! And I've only paid 50$!
  • And only one dollar a week for this amazing dress!
  • In 1929, the great depression hit and had affected everyone and changed many lives, turning the rich into the poor, and making the poor, even more, poorer Here are 2 of the 8 reasons to how it was made.
  • Hooverville (Shantytowns)
  • Man, who would've thought that the depression would be this bad... not much food, nor comfy clothing! I have to live in this shantytown without my wife or daughter!
  • Farmers were struggling to make profit from the crops they were making when the great depression hit, and it was worse when a drought hit and created dust, and all the dust accumulated got blown by air creating the infamous 'Dust Bowl'.
  • Another of the many reasons why the great depression hit was thought of to be from people borrowing too many items and having the bank pay for it.  This resulted in having credit, that when the banks demanded their money back, couldn't be paid off. This then resulted in people being in debt, and very poor.
  • When the great depression was in action, Shantytowns were created, some were named after the president who was presumed to be the cause of the Great Depression. Herbert Hoover.
