The 1930's

The decade of the worldwide Great Depression

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.
