Depression in the (greater) Burgh

Just worth reading.. from Altoona native now in Youngstown and his musings on life during the actual depression.

Makes me wonder.. did they have Black Friday during the depression?

Also reminds me of this old post with a neat video: Play and Poverty in 1930s and 40s Pittsburgh.
