728 pp, 8 1/4" H. B&w illustrations. "How did people live through the Depression of the 1930s? (T)he Depression irrevocably altered the attitudes of those who endured it, and consequently has subtly shaped the life styles of their children. This fascinating collection contains accounts from various classes - farmers, fishermen, industrial and extractive workers, white collar workers, members of the professions, independent proprietors, rentiers, managers - and those who belonged only to the vast mass of unemployed. Personal histories are nicely balanced by comments from academic writers, from journalists, social workers, policemen, the clergy, and from politicians and others who offered a bewildering selection of 'cures'. The final section of the book presents the reminiscences of several well-known Canadians." Interior - light toning to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - light browning to edgers of text block, three varying size creases at bottom corner of rear cover, two tiny corner creases on front cover, light edge wear - mainly on spine, two faint creases on spine, light rubbing - mainly on spine.
