1935-1939 pictures of the U.S.

Yes, this is another email I received that I wanted to share with you.  The pictures are supposed to be from 1935-1939, just 70 some years ago!

And we think we've got it bad!  Makes complaining about no cell service, high gasoline prices, the drive thru not moving fast enough, ect., a bit ludicrous.

Like I always say, even when things are going good or bad...LIFE IS GOOD!


  1. wow! What a difference huh? We are spoiled that is for sure. These pictures speak louder than words!

  2. great photos Michelle, doesn't hurt us to be reminded every now and then, we do have a pretty good life!

  3. Amen to that....wow. Those pics tell the story, for sure!

  4. Thanks for posting this Michelle. I've been in a feel sorry for myself funk and seeing this has made me thankful for all that I do have!

  5. Reminds me of a Chinese proverb:
    When there is food on the table, there are many problems. When there is no food on the table, there is only one problem.

    Thanks for the perspective!

  6. It is amazing when you think how things have changed in one lifetime.


  7. I agree about not complaining...because we don't know how bad it could get. Today I think of Christchurch New Zealand. I can't even imagine. Let us pray for them!
