Same scene from from a different angle
I think I read that in fact these are flood victims, lining up for assistance. Probably doesn’t change the message though
That’s one of the most dystopian pictures I’ve ever seen. It gives you a real 1984 feeling (even so 1984 is obviously way worse).
Enshrined in every US history textbook
The smiling guy behind Taye Diggs looks like an actor. Can anyone help me out?
To be fair, if you think about how world was looking like back in 1940… The living standard in the US wasn’t that bad either. And even nowadays flood victims usually relay on governmental/charity help.
What product is the poster advertising?
I’m just as interested in the apparent prevalence of metal buckets in people’s household at this time.
How is this dystopian? Yes, people tend to be poor after they’ve been victims of floods. Big fucking deal.
Was this photo taken by Margaret Bourke-White?
40s flood victims dressed classier than today’s celebrities
I prefer the Wolfenstein version
If you look closely though you’ll notice the people in the billboard, which the billboard is referring to, are white.
There’s nothing ironic about it, commie. America is the greatest country on earth.
Its weird seeing people stand so close together now…
They were flood victims i mean, thats normal to be in that situation after your house has been destroyed, that’s not descriptive of the standard of living, they’re also getting aid from the red cross which is a plus.
Well, they probably enjoyed a higher standard of living than a large part of the world at that time.
