Dirty Thirties Beach Towel





Image Size



Our luxuriously soft beach towels are made from brushed microfiber with a 100% cotton back for extra absorption.   The top of the towel has the image printed on it, and the back is white cotton.   Our beach towels are available in two different sizes: beach towel (32" x 64") and beach sheet (37" x 74").

Don't let the fancy name confuse you... a beach sheet is just a large beach towel.

Love the towel! Great quality—I wasn’t sure from the pics, but it’s the softest towel! Feels like a blanket!

Absolutely beautiful beach sheet. Excellent quality! I love it! I bought two of these, one as gift and one for me!

Artist's Description

My mother grew up during the "Great Depression" and the "Dirty Thirties" in Northern Saskatchewan and remembers having nothing to eat but white fish out of the river. When the depression ended, she never ate fish again. This is my interpretation of these hard times and the model is her granddaughter. The "Dust Bowl", or the "Dirty Thirties", was a period of severe dust storms ("black blizzards" and "black rollers") causing major ecological and agricultural damage to American and Canadian prairie lands in the 1930s, particularly in 1934 and 1936. The phenomenon was caused by severe drought combined with farming methods that did not include crop rotation, fallow fields, cover crops, soil terracing and wind-breaking trees to prevent wind erosion. Extensive deep plowing of the virgin topsoil of the Great Plains in the preceding decade had displaced the natural deep-rooted grasses that normally kept the soil in place and trapped moisture even during periods of drought and high winds.
