Color Photographs from 1930s & 1940s

08Jun11

Over the last several months, I’ve been periodically looking at this beautiful collection of photographs from the Library of Congress.  I absolutely love tho colors in these not to mention the immensely interesting subject matter.

As you know, color photographs from this era are very rare.  From the Library of Congress,  “These vivid color photos from the Great Depression and World War II capture an era generally seen only in black-and-white. Photographers working for the United States Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) created the images between 1939 and 1944.”
