The Great Depression transformed Delaware more than any other event in the modern history of the state. Through vintage photographs, this volume records both the gentle philanthropy of the people and the crushing poverty experienced by 11,000 citizens left chronically unemployed for more than a decade. It portrays the balance between agriculture and industry that defines Delaware as a state. These images show a generation that was born during the 1918 flu epidemic, lived through the worst economic slump of the 20th century, and fought and won war against German fascism and Japanese imperialism. Images of America: Delaware in the Great Depression records the story of the extraordinary people who fundamentally changed the way politics, industry, conservation, and agriculture combine to build a society and how the technological revolutions in this small state helped lay the foundation for the modern world.
