  1. 1. TP-HISTORY TASK 1: PROSPEROUS CITIES DURING THE BOOM: POOR HOOVERVILLE AFTER THE DEPRESSION:
  2. 2. Task N°2 Source 9 In Source 9, we can see a Hooverville on wasteland in Seattle, Washington. In the urban areas, there were lots of unemployed people, which lead them to live on their relatives houses, or even in the streets. These people constantly went from town to town looking for work, and were fed by charity workers. Because of this, as we said before, every town had a Hooverville. Hoovervilles were shanty towns with improvised poor huts. Migrants lived in here while they were looking for work. Living and health conditions were terrible, and people living in these areas suffered malnutrition. Moreover, they were called “Hoovervilles”, because they thought that the Republican president Hoover was the one to blame.
