This could be useful for teachers but not only. You can search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today. Most were never published and are now available for the first time through the joint work of LIFE and Google. This site could be extremely useful for all your History projects and presentations.

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

The media mention a lot  the_great_depression as a comparison with today’s financial crisis. Here are a few pictures related to this event. This first picture by Dorothea Lange is a classic (you may have seen it in you Histoty textbook). It’s title “Migrant Mother” also evokes immigration.  During The Dust Bowl families also left their homes in search of a better work.

This second picture evokes unemployement as a consequence of the Great Depression.

To finish, a short video from the BBC. Watch the images of the 1929 Crisis
