I know practically nothing about Utah in the 1930's, other than that was the Depression. Can you share why you have a love for this time period in Utah?

I have vintage postcards from 1939 of salt lake city that need an appreciative home. I dont want a morbot to have them, thus I have not listed them to sell.

Salt Lake had a wonderful trolley system with three grand unions.

SLC had trolleys until the oil companies got together and killed them nationwide so that the demand for gasoline would increase.

I think it was Frontline that did that documentary about chevron, firestone, gm? that colluded to get rid of trolley systems. I have been trying to find it for eons, do you know where it can be found?

Utah Phillips grew up in that time and place :)

Actually that whole era is of interest, not just the 30's. The Joe Hill saga. Jack London wrote about hopping trains through Ogden. Park City's silver mining history...
