Reading about the hooverville otherwise known as shanty towns blew my mind on how much people could go through during this time in these areas. The sizes of these hoovervilles ranged from just a small little corner to nearly full entire cities during this time. I can think of a few things that relates to modern day times with the hooverville but the one that jumps to me the most that relates is shelter houses for homeless people. This really doesn't have a value to me because I have a home to live it, but i do like to help out the people in need any way that I can everyday.
Just showing how hard of a time this was, this is a hooverville just outside of Portland Oregon. A big city like Portland having a hooverville within the limits even if it is out west.
