The WPA in Lubbock

Today's cultural activity was a presentation at the Mahon Public Library about the WPA in Lubbock. It was sponsored by the Lubbock Heritage Society, which is trying to revitalize itself. The lecture offered an overview of the various New Deal programs, and showed only a few pictures of the WPA projects in Lubbock.

Then two local musicians, Andy Wilkerson, and Andy Hedges, sang some Depression Era music. 

It was a good program.  I would have liked to see a few more pictures of the projects, but it was very interesting.
