The Great Depression Leo Lukaszevicz

This is an image from the dust bowl. It shows a farmer named Arthur Coble and his sons in the April of 1936.

The Dust Bowl was a big effect for the Great Depression because farmers like Arthur could not grow crops which he could heat for food and sell for money.

This picture shows more than 12 million people who were unemployed during the Great Depression.

¨(It) began in 1929 and lasted until about 1939… The economic impact of the Great Depression was enormous, including both extreme human suffering and profound changes in economic policy… ¨Between the peak and the trough of the downturn, industrial production in the United States declined 47 percent .¨

The Federal Theater Project was built to employ workers without jobs in all aspects of theater. It was in business from 1935 to 1939.
