We Had Everything But Money

We Had Everything But Money by Deb Mulvey

Personal anecdotes of the Great Depression in the United States. Includes people who lost their life savings, their jobs, their homes. . . though generally from the children's point of view, who were shielded from the full extent by their parents. Food, clothes, transportation, etc. Down to children who warned that Santa Claus was bringing more to the extremely needy and so couldn't bring them as much.
