What Every Small Town Had In North Carolina In The 1930s. It Was A Simpler Time

I love looking back at old pictures. Maybe to see the way things have changed, and maybe to see the way some things haven’t changed at all. With technology ever-abundant in our lives, sometimes we dream of simpler times when people valued a good conversation, a long walk, and Friday night with a good book or a few friends.

Sure, the 1930s were very hard times for all of America, but in those times there was also a simplicity that today, is a distant memory. These pictures will take you back to those times in North Carolina.

Even if you aren’t old enough for these picture to bring back memories for you, they certainly evoke the feelings of that simpler, slower time.
