Dustin Payne's curator insight, January 13, 2013 10:11 PM

     The author uses rhetoric in this website to give a impression on the survivors of The Great Depression. With interviewees from The Great Depression, a lot of them gave good answers to show they were the best survivors. For example one of them said "In retrospect, the situations caused by the recession could have been much worse"(Return To Black Tuesday). The interviewee uses rhetoric here to show things could have been worse and that she was a very strong person. Some survivors began to be thankful for what they had after the The Great Depression. For example "Today, we’re surviving relatively easily. But 83 years ago, those living in Canada and the United States weren’t quite as fortunate"(Return To Black Tuesday). This person is gald for everything she had and was a very strong person.

Sport During the Great Depression

Sport during the great depression for most people was a get away, even though they were losing money they still could play a little bit of community sport. Things like a community cricket/soccer or footy game could lift the spirits of the community. Although professional sport went downhill because of the lack of crowds and them taking pay cuts. But the importance of sport was big during this time, it got families minds of the money issue they were having.

Women in the Great Depression

Women in the Great Depression | U.S. History | Scoop.it
Unemployment rates actually decreased for women in the Depression, as many were forced to find work in other places. They worked in places as a nursemaid, cleaning woman, cleric or in the factory. The picture above shows a typical women's working place, as the work was considered unfit for men. This still caused public ridicule though, as many men found that they were fired when women were being hired. One man, Norman Cousins, realised that the unemployment numbers were roughly the same as the number of women working and he said: “Simply fire the women, who shouldn’t be working anyway, and hire the men. Presto! No unemployment. No relief rolls. No depression.” But some women had to work, as they were the only supporters of their family, their husband either sacked or left the family altogether. And, as mentioned above, some jobs were considered to be unfit for men. Of course, not all women found work. Many though, had lived in poverty for quite some time and were often too shy to line up in the breadlines. They would often go out to try and gain as much to feed their family as they could until they couldn't take anymore and simply fainted. A writer from the Depression, Meridel LeSueur, wrote: "A woman will shut herself up in a room until it is taken away from her, and eat a cracker a day and be as quiet as a mouse.” Simply put, many women often tried to go on living without the help of anyone, having being used to surviving on their own or too shy to ask for help.

Family Life In The Great Depression

When they weren't working, families found time to have fun, with neighbors, friends, relatives and each other. With little money to spend on entertainment, families enjoyed new board games such as "Monopoly" and "Scrabble" which were first sold during the 1930s. Neighbors got together to play card games such as whist, pinochle, canasta and bridge.

Inventions from the Great Depression

Inventions from the Great Depression | U.S. History | Scoop.it
Although the Great Depression was a stressful time for everyone, many useful inventions came out of it. - In 1910, Jacob Schick drew up designs for the world’s first the electric dry razor after he was fed up of lathering up to shave in the freezing cold. By 1929, his razors were on the shelves. This is how the company we know today as ‘Schick’ came about. - The car radio was invented by Paul and Joseph Galvin who needed a new revenue after the financial crash. Designs were drawn in 1930 and by 1933, Ford were manufacturing cars to include radios. Later on, the brothers changed their name from Galvin Manufacturers to Motorola, the company we know today. - Michael Cullen envisioned a giant store that would draw in customers with its variety and discounts. In 1930, he opened the words first supermarket. Today, King Kullen Supermarkets are still found in America today. - In 1931, Dr Earle Cleveland Haas noticed the discomfort women experienced by using pads and in 1932, the first cotton tampon was put in stores. - Chocolate chip cookies evolved in 1933 after Ruth Wakefield ran out of bakers chocolate and decided to cut up a chocolate bar instead, resulting in choc chips. Soon, Nestle bought her recipe. This is how Nestle choc-chip cookies we still have today came about. - After J.F. Cantrell noticed that only wealthy people and those that had electricity available could use powered washing machines, he opened the world’s first Laundromat. In 1934, he charged people by the hour to use his four washing machines. - The game Monopoly was invented in 1935 after Charles Darrow decided to give people something to be entertained with after all the sadness the depression caused. - Finally, in 1938, Chester Carlson became fed up with the way labs processed hand-copied drawings. After years of designs, in 1959 the world’s first automatic copier was released, resulting in the photo copier we have today.

Very interesting! Have you thought about placing dot-points in front of each point so that it is easier for the viewer to read? Did you mean "used pads" or "usig pads"? Excellent points :)
