An antique-mall gem, which I used to kick off writing about the many cameras in my collection.
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 and captions are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.
This blog entry is from last year, but it’s enjoying a resurgence we thought we would share.
I -love- these images.
