Vintage American Photographs

pfmastinAugust 6, 2010

I thought all of you might enjoy seeing these fantastic photographs.

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 AmericaƂs 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.
