“Curiosity got the best of me, and what started out as my tearing apart those lucite monster wedges that you know I loved to death in all their tack-tasticness, lead to 3234023945234 hours of research and birthed this obsessive experiment in making a luxe-ified stripper heel without having (yet) acquired a last, or at the time, knowledge of shoe construction.”

Check out some of these pics from this site that my friend just sent me. The photos were taken by Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information photographers, and they are some of the only photographs that captured the effect of the Depression in rural or small towns. All photographs are now property of the Library of Congress.
