The setting of this story is the early 1930s.


Goods transported on carts pulled by mules, rather than trucks.

Somehow, it was hotter then: a black dog suffered on a summer’s day; bony mules hitched to Hoover carts flicked flies in the sweltering shade of the live oaks on the square.

There is no money because the novel is set in the midst of the Great Depreesion.

There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb County.
