Erosion of the Land and Erosion of the People: Illinois in the Great Depression (Full Video)
Drawing upon Farm Security Administration photographs and archival film footage captured during the 1930s, this Illinois State Geological Survey video production presents a new visual portrait of a time period in Illinois for which the oral history and physical landscape have largely disappeared. The story of the decade-long Great Depression is explored during this full length 40-minute video. Individual parts can be revisited at the playlist on the ISGS YouTube channel.
