Maude Patterson, Beauty Shop operator and owner: "I don't know how we would have existed in Carbon Hill without WPA work. It has brought money into the town. This is one of the poorest towns in the county, and one of the poorest counties in the state. So I don't know how we would have existed without WPA payroll. The mines don't work during the summer." Mrs. James Sides, customer: "They have done a great deal. I guess we would have gone hungry without WPA — I mean at the store (Sides Mercantile Store) without WPA."
