This Is What Life In The U.S. Looked Like In 1935. WOW.

As our parents and grandparents love to remind us, life wasn’t always like it is today. In 1935, America was dealing with the Great Depression and inching its way towards World War II. Check out these fascinating snapshots of everyday life in the United States back in 1935. Some things are familiar – families, kids, and shopping during the holidays – while other elements make the past feel like a different world.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Do you have similar photos from this time passed down to you by family members? Any stories told that were particularly fascinating? Feel free to share in the comments.
