Living in Color

The country in color photographs from 1939-1943 are shown in an exhibit by the Library of Congress titled, Bound for Glory: America in Color. The images are a collection of color transparencies (Kodachrome) taken by the Farm Security Administration / Office of War Information. These images are remarkable and mundane at the same time, showing life in an era after the Great Depression and at the start of WWII. We see everyday life and the build up of the military might, industry and rural life creating a look of America not often seen and even more rare in color. To see the full collection of images go to this link at the Library of Congress and enjoy the beauty of life through color.
