This is a picture from the Great Depression, I believe that its relative to our story not just because of the story itself, but because it accurately portrays the way of life for George and Lennie. Through the story, it talks about the desperation for jobs and how hard it is to get eve n a low paying one, these two men in the picture above I believe represent that struggle for economical security in their lives
This picture shows a man that is holding a sign that is written that the man does not want charity but a job. This is a great representation of how people felt and what they had to get through in the Great Depression. People wanted work so they would not have to owe anyone anything. So they could have freedom. "We wouldn’t ask nobody if we could. Jus’ say, ‘We’ll go to her,’ an’ we would. Jus’ milk the cow and sling some grain to the chickens an’ go to her.” (Steinbeck 61).
