Roosevelt in Alabama

In the discussion of the topic I started yesterday - https://forums.aaca.org/topic/339811-great-depression-era-i-dont-think-so/-  - a link was posted by mike6024 relating to the great Depression in Alabama.




In this article is the photo which I had posted - found on a facebook page - which purports to have been taken during 'The Great Depression' - which it obviously was not.


Another photo in that article is interesting, showing FDR visiting a dam in 1933. I am intrigued that the car - a 1927 Cadillac I think - has no top fitted.
