Dinner Is Served
“Cowboy dishing up chili at noonday dinner. Cattle ranch near Marfa, Texas.” (1939)
“Christmas dinner in home of Earl Pauley. Near Smithfield, Iowa. Dinner consisted of potatoes, cabbage and pie.” (1936)
“The Faro Caudill [family] eating dinner in their dugout, Pie Town, New Mexico.” (1940)
“Lumberjacks eating dinner at camp near Effie, Minnesota.” (1937)
“After dinner coffee, restaurant, Lufkin, Texas.” (1939)
These photos certainly put things in perspective. They definitely give us a lot to be thankful for, and a greater appreciation for our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents who may have lived through the Depression.
