These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.*
Wonderful, simply fascinating color photos from early 20th century America. It’s difficult to imagine how different our lives are, and just how fortunate we really are, less than 100 years later.
