A Depression Program by George Lawrence Parker

A Depression Program

By George Lawrence Parker

  1. Don’t believe all you hear about the depression.  Carry your own courageously.  Allow for exaggeration.
  2. Dare to be unfashionable.  Don’t curse the world you live in.
  3. Don’t smile all the time, but do smile some of the time. Snarling is bad for the face and the soul.
  4. Don’t deny the depression; but don’t substitute it for eternity.
  5. Maybe you weren’t really happy before the depression.  Try it now.
  6. Keep healthy.  Most people eat too much anyhow.
  7. Look into religion a bit.  Maybe there’s something in it.
  8. Love people harder than ever.  They need it.
  9. Play with children.  They don’t know anything about the stock market.
  10. Expect a better world.  It’s on the way.  Part of it will get here if you don’t spill it.
  11. Drive out fear.  “He’s the only thing to be afraid of.”
  12. Forget prosperity.  Most of it lies right under your own coat.
  13. Be honest.  It will soon be in fashion again.

1934 Cadillac LaSalle – Puttin on the Ritz

with one comment

This car was just a beauty. So elegant. When converted to black and white, it looks like this stunner put on a tuxedo and was ready to be “puttin on the Ritz”

1948 Lincoln – Big Iron

with 3 comments

When I saw this car, I was amazed at how ‘big’ it was… it just seemed huge to me. Nice car though, and very luxurious. I imaged that a female – 1940s movie star rode around in this. (Turner Classic Movies). Hope you like it. I did a smidgen of photo magic.. but not much.

1938 Buick Convertible

I wanted to do some comparison of color vs black&white – looking for a more dramatic effect in the photos. Offer any suggestions you wish. Maybe because the car is a 1938 the black and white seems a bit more nostalgic and CLASSY!
