Great Depression

    Newer Older

    Bronze sculpture of a man listening to the 1930s valve radio. This sculpture by George Segal at the Franklin D Roosevelt Memorial, Washington, DC, commemorates the famous fireside radio chats during the Great Depression. Time for some similar initiatives?

      This Memorial is my favorite to visit! So many moving sculptures & quotes in stone.
      Fireside chats would be good...if they were from someone other than the buffoon that's in office now!...;-/

      Beautifully photographed. Too bad $10 billion a month is still be spent in Iraq in the name of nation building while the structures of our democracy at home continue to crumble.
      Seen on your photo stream. (?)

      a sculpture that is a piece of history...

      Does history repeat itself?
      I think it does, with subtle variations, of course!
