OK, so I’ll admit it, these are not cute. But they are AMAZING and some of the only color photographs to come out of the 1930s, so today we’re changing the blog to Look Out! The Amazing!
This collection of photos was commissioned by the Farm Security Adminstration/Office of War Information to document the effects of the Great Depression. The photos themselves are so beautiful and capture so much about a time we usually only think of in grainy sepia tone stills. The shots were converted from color slides.
Check out the whole collection on the Denver Post blog for more 1930s photographs!
