I think that it was great how Lange incorporated the history of the 1930’s into her discussion of these photographs. She simply wove it into her writings. I did not incorporate very much history of the Depression into my paper, although now, I wish that I would have. I wrote about how times were tough, and that some families had to go on relief, but besides describing my grandmother’s day-to-day life, I don’t think a reader could really understand how bad the Depression really was.
