Have you had a lemonade stand? I didn't. Well, lemonade stands have been a children's business ventures during the hot summer days.

The our Gang films and shorts displayed friendship among kids regardless of their background. The Great Depression was a dark time for their viewers. These short films probably were a welcome relief for viewers.
