The business district along Hawarden’s Central Avenue is bustling in this image from the 1930s. Hawarden was the Iowa birthplace of experiments with local scrip as a means of combating the effects of the Great Depression. For more on such experiments in Hawarden and other Iowa communities, see Jonathan Warner’s article in this issue. Photo from State Historical Society of Iowa, Iowa City.
