What Every Small Town In Virginia Had In The 1930s. It Was A Simpler Time.

The 1930s was not an easy decade for Americans or Virginians. Looking back at photographs of that era, there seems to be an abundance of determination, especially when times were tough. 80 years later, we look back at small towns in Virginia and admire the simple things that don’t seem to be as common any more.

These photographs remind us that small towns stuck together and remained a community despite hard times. It’s difficult not to feel nostalgia for some of these days gone by, when technology had not yet busied everyday living.
