Just wanted to share this amazing archive of color photos from WWII-era America, published by the Library of Congress on Flickr: link. A new look at a very different time. For me, the images of the Virginia countryside stood out simply because they are so familiar — they make me wish I were back home.
These vivid color photos from the Great Depression and World War II capture an era generally seen only in black-and-white. Photographers working for the United States Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) created the images between 1939 and 1944.
Note: If you have Firefox, get the Cooliris plugin; it’s a great way to browse photo sets like this one.
