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.
This is probably more folks than live in Pie Town, today.
No doubt that MEN ONLY and WHITE ONLY returned to much of the American workplace after war’s end.
A fabulous collection of photos. A true discovery. Thanks to the Denver POST for archiving them. The Library of Congress for the discovery and transferring to prints. Wander through the collection – there are dozens of prints.
