Chicago in the Depression

We happen to know quite a few former Chicagoland residents now residing on Pensacola Beach and nearby communities. Others, too, may be interested in Sharon Williams' photos and links about "Chicago in the Great Depression" now running on her Chicago History blog.

Included is a photo of Al Capone's soup kitchen for the poor and links to a number of fascinating articles describing how the lives of ordinary folk were affected by that earlier financial crisis.
