The Great Depression The Great Depression The Great DepressionTwo 8 x 10 gelatin silver prints. One shows customers in a grocery store, paying with food stamps. A purple caption printed on the verso explains this experimental 1939 program. Among those eligible are those receiving Aid to the Blind, and the customer at the counter is indeed blind. The blue stamps could only be used to purchase surplus commodities. This is a U.S.D.A. photograph by Parker.

The second photograph, wthout caption or credit, shows a customer examining shirts that he could purchase with Cotton Stamps.

Both are clean and undamaged.
