The 1930's

The decade of the worldwide Great Depression Read more >>

The 1930's were a decade of severe stress: the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, the rise of Nazism. But it was also the end of Prohibition, the beginning of the change of land management (poor farm practices created the Dust Bowl), and the New Deal. It was a tough time through which to live but it was also the beginning of changes that lead to prosperity. << Read less
A photo of Carol and brother Murray Altmann riding their bikes in Manhattan NYC late 1930's. This is my mother (Carol Altmann Pinsky) on her bike with her brother, enjoying the streets of NYC. Somehow this picture was used for an ad that was one of those small inserts inside the subway trains at the time. My mother left NY in 1945 and went to St Paul, MN to make a life. She chose there because her sister Ruth Altmann had moved there. She lived there until 1970, when she moved to Los Angeles. She was a photographer, painter, poet, and writer. She was strong, fierce and a liberated woman from the moment she was born. Just like her own mother, Francis Saltzberg Altmann.
