What Dinner was Like During the Great Depression [Photos]

Stunning photos from the great depression of the 1930s capture how resilient humans were during the deepest and longest-lasting economic downturn in history. The worth-praising part that show how adaptable we can be as a society, was how people of the era remained positive and creative, despite the challenges the great depression brought.

Another thing worth-mentioning about people who lived through the great depression era was the ability to keep food on the table for the family. The following photos show what dinner was like during the 10-year global economic crisis:
