Title Photo of 1532nd Co. CCC camp in Huntington, Indiana, 8-1933
Description Postcard from August 1933 shows the Huntington Civilian Conservation Corps camp. The "CCC" was a work relief program (part of Roosevelt's New Deal) that employed thousands of men across the US between 1933 and 1942. The lender's father, Charles Bourne, was at this camp; men can be seen tending a garden between the tents. In Indiana the men did everything from building public restrooms to improving state parks.
