21 Rare Photos Taken In South Carolina During The Great Depression

South Carolina has endured through some pretty tough times, including the Great Depression. The quality of life has greatly improved since the 1930s, when times were so hard. But folks here in the Palmetto State are still willing to lend a hand to our neighbors in need. Here are some photos from around the state that show what life was like back then.


For those of us who weren’t around during the Great Depression these photos give us insight into the hard life our parents, grandparents or great-grandparents endured in the 1930s. Folks lost their homes and their jobs but they had each other.

Today in the Palmetto State we still have each other. Because at the end of the day family is what’s most important.
