Special notes Edited by Ernest Borneman
The small towns of Canada passed through the prosperity of the 1920s, the depression of the 1930s, and then had to cope with the stress of wartime economy. The people worked together using such measures as rationing, salvage drives and victory gardens to alleviate the problems of shortages and inflation. (National Film Board of Canada)
