The irony in your statement, Mike, is that such a high proportion of the current population do not take advantage of the opportunities available to them. Those pictures serve as a hard reminder of how much the mindset has changed.
I was watching a documentary on the creation of the CCC during the Great Depression and it occurred to me that the people in these pix are the product of those times. I think it would be impossible to put a CCC together today if for no other reason than the national prevalence of drug use.
Thank you so much, Bruce for posting them. They are stunning and they remind me of my parents. What a great collection!
