Colourful Glimpse of the Past!

Captured: American in Colour from 1939 to 1943

I found a link to these photographs that were published in the Denver Post last year and thought you might enjoy viewing them. I find them remarkable. Click HERE to view. How different history looks in full colour. Amazing!

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.

  1. Wow...thanks so much for the link! I looked at every photo and they seemed so surreal as they were in color.
