My father-in-law had it so good during that time, that he & a friend of his pooled their money & bought a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle.

Get a copy of Studs Terkel's oral history of the Depression. It's called "Hard Times." A very good read.

ANY IDEAS HOW PEOPLE DID IT ? WHERE DID THEY LIVE WHAT DID THEY EAT???HOW THEY MADE IT?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 328162

My Grandparents went through the depression. My mother and father came from big families. They grew vegetables had fruit trees and their own chickens. That was when you could have livestock even in towns and cities, you can't anymore because of health and safety laws of local councils.

When people had no work soup kitchens were established and food stamps were issued. My family didn't have to live on the street as they owned their own homes and were freeholders.

Things were different then, women stayed at home and ran the house and took care of the family. They made homemade jams, chutneys and other jarred food from their harvest. My uncles went hunting and fishing, which they would smoke the meat or salt it in brine to keep for low times. The eggs and meat from the chickens. They were a tough generation.

Re: HOW DID PEOPLE SURVIVE THE GREAT DEPRESSION???
Well from what my mother told me before she died, that during the depression there was alot more farmers out there(over 70% of family's lived on farms at this time) and they were able to feed their families with what they raised. They had the food stamps that allotted them so much meat, flour, sugar, gas, etc. per week.Then they supplemented that with what they raised on their farm.Also back in this time, farmers didn't raise just one thing like today. There were a variety of fruits veggies and meat all being raised at the same time.So they were pretty much self sufficient. If there was something they didn't raise then a neighbor down the road did, thus the trade and barter system was an important feature for them to get by.I'm afraid that we won't be so lucky this time, we are city living people that have very limited resources to fall back on. The farms are bought up by corps. that won't be letting anyone on them to raise anything.And few people will be knowing how to grow raise and preserve food to keep for any length of time .

go ask a homless person how they do it, that should give you a good clue, unless you own land and then you better know how to farm and shoot a gun.

This ^^^^^^^

These are the oral histories of the people who lived through that time and tell, in their own words, how they did it. There are stories from all walks of life in here, so you will find something of value no matter where you live.

Note that there was a lot of cooperation and ingenuity involved in just figuring how to get by. Neighbors looking out for neighbors, etc. A fantastic read.

It's also contrasted with the stories of their offspring, the children who simply could not understand why their parents and grandparents saved every single thing. It is a great read.

Exactly right. The inner city hoards that elected 0bama are the same govt dependent 'zombies' that will begin murdering and looting immediately, just like New Orleans after Katrina. This is why there are so many 'preppers' these days. It is important that everyone begin arming themselves to the teeth to pop off the zombie looters as they begin traveling the countryside looting and murdering. It is morally acceptable to take out the zombies as they approach your front door under these circumstances (the authorities will be busy elsewhere). I recommend a .223 cal rifle.
