Great Depression Exhibit

Thanks to everyone who came to our temporary exhibit “Memories of the Great Depression.” Here is a glimpse of some of the antique items that were on display.

Life was difficult during those years, but life sure didn’t stand still. In fact, some of the new products and inventions developed during that time remain in our lives today: grocery carts, Jello®, Spam®, and decorative pressed glass for daily use (known as ‘Depression Glass’ today).

More memories coming soon for our next special exhibit on community clubs and organizations in Sunnyvale!
