America in Colour

Some amazing images from the late 30’s and early 40’s of America in colour. Really hits home to me that things were not much different to we are now. See old image in colour rather than black and white brings them into the same reality as ourselves i think. People don’t change, just the fashions that surround them.

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 are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.

One Response to America in Colour

  1. Wow. Amazing photos! They all look great! These kind of photos should be preserved so we can remember the past any time. 🙂 I like the 5th picture! So classic. As well as the one with the Coca Cola image. That tells that Coca-cola is indeed one of the best in the market from past to present. 🙂
