Amazing color pictures of rural America in the depression years 1939-1943

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. These 70 photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.
