Depression-era apple seller's placard, 1930  


I know that apple sellers were plentiful enough that they became a sort of stereotype of the Depression, but seeing this card is fascinating to me!

I could have sworn there was a "Great Depression" tag. Maybe I need another aspirin.

I'm unemployed and I cannot afford to buy apples. Now what?

Well, I'm not, but my hubby is.
