Not everyone was badly hurt by the Great Depression. For example, the people in this July 18 1931 photograph from the Toronto Daily Star look like they’re having fun:
I assume that this photograph is staged, especially considering the lopsided woman-to-man ratio (either 9 to 1 or 8 to 2 – I’m not sure about the blond person with short hair near the back). And that speed boat is way too crowded and no one is wearing a life jacket!
My first thought when I saw this picture was of the song Seven Little Girls.
