Will Roger once said that the United States was the only country in the world where people went to the poor house driving an automobile.
I just read that one of the few American-Made motion pictures that was shown in the post-war Soviet Union was "The Grapes of Wrath" because it showed the plight of the people under Capitalism.
They eventually pulled it because moviegoers were noticing that, apparently, even poor people in the United States could afford a car.
Looks like Hershey...
Hmm, Not a pot a john anywhere, Guess you may have to watch where you step
In a new 2017 or 2018 version of this picture, under President Hillary's new climate change laws, there will be no cars, they are now outlawed, only bicycles allowed. The Soviet Union will be so happy.
Even though the country was in dire straights, people still had pride in her. I count at least two American flags.
Allen, I see four American flags.
I see 6 American flags.
1- right side of the photo, center by the car
1- draped over the tent by the bonds sign
1- on a pole just past the bonds sign
2- on poles at the top of the photo just beneath the 9:28 posting time
1- to the far right of the photo below the punched hole
I guess that is a Bonus sign not bonds sign.
Kevin, Kevin, Kevin...
John, I am not saying the other choice is better, just not as corrupt. It's your choice, or should I say their is no good choice.
One choice is a roll of the dice. The other a sure bet of status quo corruption of the highest order ....
Take your pick. :-P
Does the "Bonus" sign refer to the "Bonus Army" of WWI vets who demanded, in 1932, early payment of a post war bonus. FYI, your mileage may vary.
The choices are limited but Hillary is a ridiculous person and very fake. It seems it would be part 2 of the rapid decline of our great nation if Hillary is running the SHOW!
Jack has nailed this one. The photo is of Camp Marks in the summer of 1932 in Washington DC. It is a photo that is in the National Archives. The vets eventually received the bonus in 1936 and Roosevelt authorized that 25,000 places in the Civilian Conservation Corps would be for WWI veterans.

When the Army destroyed the camps and ran the veterans off was not a proud day for the country. They finally received some part of the promised bonus under President F. D. Roosevelt.
