This Is What Life In Wyoming Looked Like In 1936. Wow.
The 1930s was an interesting time for both the United States and for Wyoming. While the U.S. was reeling from the Great Depression, Wyoming was dealing with a terrible drought. During this time, the state concentrated on building dams and addressing irrigation issues. Cattlemen and sheepmen were also in conflict over grazing rights. Finally, in 1934, an act was passed to avert overgrazing. Here are some pictures of Wyoming taken in 1936 that reflect life during that era.
