  • 1930s State Guidebooks

    Here is a wealth of information to help create authentic settings for transition era layouts all over the U.S.A. (except for Alaska and Hawaii that weren't states yet).

    These guidebooks were a Depression Era "Federal Writers' Project". I only glanced at a couple to get a quick idea of what they covered. It's a lot more than tourist attractions and amusements, some of the book are 500 pages! But the sections I looked at for specifics were a couple pages each.

    There's geology and botany of the state, resources, industries, products, transportation and more - All through a lens of that time period. That's pretty cool.

    The books can be read online for free at this link to Rowan University's Campbell Libraryhttps://libguides.rowan.edu/c.php?g=248106&p=1653082

    There are other sources online as well, just search for WPA Federal Writers' Project State Guidebooks. Something to read while the glue is curing or the paint drying
