Glendale, California. 1927. The family gathers around the table as father carves a roast duck while making a thrilling announcement that shortly we’ll be moving into a fabulous new house. Then history takes over. One day we were rich. The next we were broke. Living in a little cottage surrounded by a walnut grove. Come along with Bill and Dottie Tyrrell as we lived through the worst depression in American History. Hang out with the blonde curly head that was me as we punch our way through hard times. It’s a story worth repeating.

About Lou Tyrrell

For 50 years I was a television producer/director/writer. My first book, "The Flying Phone Booth" told the story of my three years directing and producing Candid Camera. Luckily I was born with a photographic memory which has stayed with me more or less for 86 years. Watching todays economy I thought back to my childhood and living through the great depression. I wrote all the stories about how our family lived through that horrible decade between 1927 and 1937. Read about how real people faced the money crunch, the CCC, (Civilian Conservation Corp), the WPA, free food from the county and the tragedy of my fathers passing. I'm lucky to still be here to tell you younger folks how a real depression feels.
