This Is What North Carolina Looked Like In The Late 1930s And Early 1940s. WOW

A photograph captures a moment in time. Moments that have passed and moments that otherwise we’d have no access to. Luckily, Yale documents released pictures from across America that highlight life during and after the Great Depression. During this time, North Carolina’s prime source of income was in tobacco farming and agriculture. But, the workers still took time to kick back when they weren’t working. All of this simple life, from the farming, the rehabilitation clients of the Great Depression, and their leisure time was all captured and is now available for the world to see.

The pictures below are simply fascinating. Enjoy.
