One cause of the Great Depression was the stock market crash of 1929. The stock market crash did accelerate the global economic collapse. many investors lost A LOT of money.
This image shows two families in the south near Atlanta Georgia, that got impacted from the Great Depression. The Great Depression even brought a lot of unemployment and had increased the suicide rate. This affected the majority of the United States. Many people lost their homes and many died.

I chose this song because it was released in 1936. This is around the Great Depression and people did look to music and entertainment as a distraction.The lyrics also relate to money troubles and of things getting better.
