The video above, although made in 2008, depicted life in the 1920’s during the Great Depression. Depicated in the video are people that had to adjust to their new lives now that they could no longer could live the way they used to after the stock market crash. The change represented in the video is the biggest social change in America since the industrial revolution. With the crash of the stock market, banks, schools, and family farms were all closed down (for the most part) and people began to move where ever they could find basic shelter.
