Old Photos

I stumbled across these pictures, which are purported to be about the only color pictures taken of the effects of the Great Depression in the small towns of USA. The pictures were made by various photographers working for the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information. These pictures are not mine; they are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in an exhibition in 2006 entitled Bound For Glory: America in Color.

I reckon as a citizen of that country I can post them for your enjoyment. Let me hear from you!
