a new 5 bedroom stucco bungalow was listed in California for $3,750.
and a gallon of gas was 10 cents.
You could have bought steak for 10 cents for a pound,
and a pair of single vision glasses would have cost you $3.85.
A radio would cost $9.95.
If you were buying a Plymouth Roadking car, you needed to have saved $685.
Sounds great, doesn't it?
Now remember the average US income in 1930 was $1970.00 a year, and by 1939 it had dropped to $1730.00 a year.
It puts these prices into a different perspective, doesn't it?
