The Great Depression was one of the most difficult times in history. According to the estimates of Stanley Lebergott and other economists, approximately 25% of Americans were without jobs. The economic crisis extended across the Atlantic and affected millions of people in Europe as well.

We are currently living in another economic crisis. However, it is important to remember that the Great Depression of the 1930s was much worse than what we are going through today. Many Dribbble artists shared images from this trying time in history so that we can all understand the challenges that past generations had to endure.
