It’s hard to write stuff like the family investing in the stock market, because of the exact reason you mentioned. But the Bradfords were fairly affluent by that point, and that’s what the affluent did during that era. No one thought that anything would go wrong. Oh, how wrong they were. I did a lot of research myself about the causes as well, but no, there’s no way to pinpoint one specific thing that caused the crash. But yes, it’s oddly familiar to what’s going on in the current financial market.

It’s nice to see the recessives that have been hiding come out to play, that’s for sure. Nicky is a cutie. I think Cindy was just on the extreme end of the fears that most expectant/new mothers feel (I can’t say for certain, since I’ve never been either), but I know that I don’t really get interested in my friends’ kids until they start to talk and show a little bit of personality. Cindy was always going to soften up towards the idea of kids, once she realized that her experience as a mother would be completely different from the once she saw her mother go through.

It was nice to have James finally ‘fess up about how he was earning his money. Marsha has been getting a little preachy as of late, and she needed to be put in her place. But from what I found, many Prohibitionists were very much like her, in that they thought no booze was the only way. She is becoming a bit like Jan in some ways. Hopefully the Depression will force her to look at the big picture a little more and help her snap out of it.

The Depression will certainly be interesting. There are a lot of things that I can pull for inspiration. I may mention the Dust Bowl in passing, as Alex’s descendants missed out it by moving back East, and it did affect the East coast by blotting out the sun during the winter. I think the crime wave and notorious criminals will play a role too. After all, James is involved with a lot of nefarious activities.

Thanks for the comment!
