This Is What Life In North Carolina Looked Like In 1935. WOW.

Life in North Carolina was very different in 1935. The whole nation felt the impact of the Great Depression and many families were struggling to make ends meet. It was also a simpler time but that didn’t mean that simplicity came with a stable existence. There were abandoned mansions, children without shoes, families without supper on the table and hardworking famers trying to put their life back together.

What a completely different time. What did you think of the images? Tell us in the comments!
