These 14 Houses In Pennsylvania From The 1930s Will Open Your Eyes To A Different Time

The Great Depression struck America like a sack of bricks during the 1930s, and caused many people to drastically alter their ways of life. Of course, housing is a huge part of this, which is why in Pennsylvania during this time, tenements were common and people often lived in crowded conditions. Many people were able to sustain lifestyles that appeared unaffected by the depression, though. Check out these photographs of houses in Pennsylvania from the 1930s; they are sourced from Yale and the Library of Congress.

Do you recognize any of the places in these photographs? Some of them make me grateful for the comfortable living conditions I enjoy. Have any Great Depression stories or photographs? Share them below.
