All about the '30s

  1. 1. All About the ’30s By Emily Rueber and Rachel Madden
  2. 2. Women’s Fashion <ul><li>1. What did women wear in this era? </li></ul><ul><li>When the Great Depression hit, women headed to the thrift shop. They wore newly designed skirts compared to the old 20s boyish flapper clothes. Fur was commonly used in outerwear. There was a variety of shoes. Washable, easy-care fabrics were introduced. </li></ul>http://www.fashion-templates.com/about/1930
  3. 3. Men’s Fashion <ul><li>2. Enough about women, what did men wear? </li></ul><ul><li>Men as everybody as knows, doesn’t have as much fashion. In this era, they particularly wore shirts with no undershirts. They did this to imitate Clark Gable. They also wore single breasted jackets, but later on double breasted jackets were in fashion again. </li></ul>http://www.fashion-templates.com/about/1930
  4. 4. Fashion Continued <ul><li>3. What happened with fashion in the war and depression era? </li></ul><ul><li>During the war and depression, people did not have access to top brand clothing manufacturers. Plus, they couldn’t even afford nice clothes. You mostly saw people walking around in rags and looking for any other scrap of clothing they could find. Fashion was just going to have to be on hold until it was over. </li></ul>http://www.kidsnewsroom.org/elmer/infoCentral/frameset/decade/1930.htm http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/54/Lange-MigrantMother02.jpg/461px-Lange-MigrantMother02.jpg
  5. 5. Politics/FDR <ul><li>4. Who was the president during the ’30s? </li></ul><ul><li>Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) was the president at the time. He tried to get diverse groups together. He announced on the radio what was happening to keep everyone in tune. FDR cared about the people very much, which made him a very good president. </li></ul>http://www.museum.siu.edu/museum_classroom_grant/Museum_Explorers/school_pages/bourbonnais/page3.htm
  6. 6. Politics Continued <ul><li>5. Was the conflict between whites and African Americans over? </li></ul><ul><li>In the south, there was still strong feelings about race relations, meaning they did not want to mix. To solve this, new programs were created to give blacks more opportunities. FDR unraveled the history of the blacks to the whites to show what they went through. For example, slavery. </li></ul>http://www.whitehouse.gov/about/presidents/franklindroosevelt/
  7. 7. Economics <ul><li>6. What happened to the economy? </li></ul><ul><li>This was the time of the Great Depression. People lost money because banks closed due to the stock market. There were not many jobs so FDR created his Works Progress Administration. Things were rationed because of them not being affordable and the war effort. </li></ul>http://www.metronetiq.com/archives/wpa/wpa1.jpg
  8. 8. Entertainment <ul><li>7. What kind of entertainment was around? </li></ul><ul><li>Listening to the radio was popular because it provided free entertainment and FDR’s “Fireside Chats” were encouraging. Some movies that came out were “Frankenstein”, “The Wizard of Oz”, “Snow White”, and “Gone With the Wind.” Several musicals came out such as “42 nd Street”, “Gold Diggers of 1933”, and “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.” (Epstein 11-13) </li></ul>
