These are some of the dishes my Grandmother collected during the Depression of 1930. Because of the depression not many would go to the movie theaters, so they started giving out dishes to get people to come in. Around here Wednesday was dish night, and for a nickel you could see the news reel of what was going on in the world, get a dish, and see a movie. During the summer it was a better treat, the movie theaters where air conditioned! Today we hide in our homes with our air conditioner, and cable TV. Do you remember your mothers collecting glasses from laundry soap, or maybe a new towel? Do you have some of your Grandmothers dishes from dish night? Let me know, and lets share some stories. Have a great weekend.
