Diced canned tomatoes did not exist until the mid 90's so can hardly be called a depression era recipe. If the cook making this dish used home made canned tomatoes or purchased whole or quartered tomatoes, it can then be referred to as a depression era recipe or after the war ration era recipe which it was in my family.
My mother would prepare this recipe with whatever she had in the pantry as you described, one being tomato soup or most of the time a jar of her canned tomatoes that she'd cut into small pieces before adding to the dish.I've always done the same especially when my children now in their 50's were small and money was sparse, but like my mother and grandmother always did, I used my own canned tomatoes from my garden or local farm or last resort, a tin of purchased whole canned tomatoes.I rarely if ever use diced canned tomatoes or petite canned tomatoes as they are treated to not break down like regular canned tomatoes do when making sauces for pasta and such.
