At the start of the crash, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 381 points, and when it bottomed out in July 1932, it had fallen to 41 points - a decline of 89%. The crash was partly caused by an increase in margin buying, where investors borrowed money to buy stocks. The Great Depression resulting from the crash lasted until World War II began in 1939.
