1924 Chevrolet Housecar Exhibit at Murphy Auto Museum Recalls Dust Bowl of 1930s

The Dust Bowl was a period of severe dust storms in the 1930s caused by severe drought and improper farming methods. The Murphy Auto Museum in Oxnard is currently exhibiting a 1924 Chevrolet Housecar and other items that recall the Dust Bowl and the families that traveled and lived in cars in California looking for work.

In mid-November, documentary "Dust Bowl" by Ken Burns premiered on PBS. The film chronicles this period of American history in which the frenzied wheat boom of the "Great Plow-Up," followed by a decade-long drought during the 1930s nearly swept away the breadbasket of the nation. Visit www.pbs.org/kenburns/dustbowl for more information.
