The Great Depression was the worst economic, social and political disaster faced by our country. We have all read about the “Hoovervilles” in which people were forced to live in cardboard boxes along the railroad tracks.
Fifteen million Americans were unemployed. Songs like HEY BUDDY HAVE YOU GOT A DIME were very popular.
