        Life on a Rural Midwest Family Farm during the Great Depression | The People in the Pictures

        Learn how life on a farm in the early twentieth century was challenging but families were very self-sufficient in this video from Iowa Public Television. Many farms went bankrupt. Those that survived did so by working hard and stretching every dollar. This video features original photography and first-person accounts of farm life in rural America during the Great Depression and early twentieth century.

        Check out the entire The People in the Pictures: Stories from the Wettach Farm Photos.
