  • The negative views hobos received from other people, with many getting mixed up with bums and tramps and the differences between each term.
  • Hoboes having to travel to different town for work, ask people for food in exchange for chores, and how they lived in hobo jungle settlements.
  • Available methods of transport, such as cars, trains, ships, and the concerns people had with air travel, the newest way of transportation.
  • Summer activities during the Depression, such as gathering at local parks, attending baseball games, and playing miniature golf.
  • Financial problems parks and recreation areas faced, resulting in the formation of The Civilian Conservation Corps, which hired young, unmarried men to help maintain parks.
