This Is What Texas Looked Like In 1939. WOW.

Most of us hadn’t graced the earth with our presence yet in the 1930’s, but that doesn’t stop us from wondering what life was like. Our parents and grandparents can share memories and stories, but there’s nothing like a photo gallery to convey the trials and tribulations (and blessings) of being alive in post-Depression Texas. Take a look at these 24 old photos from 1939.

As you can see, life was very different back then. But differences aside, there are some things about our state that will always remain the same – and looking into the past can remind us of this. What are your thoughts on these pictures? Let me know in the comments below!
