Accessibility ViewThe Great Depression- AnnMarie
Pollard Today was the best day for the booming economy in
Washington state. Then came the downpour. Life during
the Great Depression was terrible. Companies failing,
unemployment, and homeless camps, are only some of
the factors that made everyday life miserable.This event is
important to study because the Great Depression greatly
alternated the role of government, especially the federal
government within our nation’s economy. Another reason
this event is important to study, because it shows the
importance of the roles that money, banks, and the stock
market plays in our economy. Within the logic behind the reasons of why life was
terrible during the Great Depression, the first is that
companies were failing. According to the University
National Bank advertisement from 1933, that through
thick and thin, they would be able to pull through the
crisis of the time, known as the Great Depression.
The intention of this advertisement was to show that
companies, such as banks, were failing. All of this,
leading to unemployment.This picture is referring to how this bank will be able to stay open –… Another reason life was terrible during the Great
Depression was unemployment. In 1932 nearly thirty
million Americans had lost their source of income from
becoming unemployed. This includes a quarter of the
population of Washington state. According to the
picture, many people–especially men– were beingfired from their jobs. The purpose of this picture is to
show that so many companies were failing and closing
that all of these people were being laid off their jobs.
There was not just a few people that got laid off their
jobs, but millions of people. Meaning more than just a
few companies closing. This illustrates that the
situation was so pertinent that a mayor had to go and
address all of those people. Following unemployment,
came homelessness.Homelessness quickly followed from joblessness. The last reason that life was terrible during the
Great Depression was homelessness. The picture
shows that after being unemployed, the people would
need to find another place to live. Many people would
start to build their own ‘houses’. The purpose of this
picture is to demonstrate what the people effected by
joblessness would do to make sure they have a place
to live, and what their lives were like during the
aftermath of joblessness. The picture illustrates that
after being unemployed, the people would need to
find another place to live, and they would have to
build it themselves. The Great Depression from a sociological
standpoint changed the behaviors, beliefs, lifestyles,
and communication. All changes were drastic.
Everyone had a different understanding about the
Great Depression, but everyone felt changed and
challenged by the experience. Health, education, and
the quality of life made a huge impact and social
effects on families and individuals. The way of life for
everyone studies perspective 2 (optional) From a
economical perspective, the Great Depression
changed many peoples income rates, and ways to
receive payment. Banks closed,individuals lost their
jobs, and stores closed, leaving because they had
no more money. This experience was traumatic,
because for a many years, people went without
having a lot of money.Resources:
