Color Photos from the 1940's

*All photographs seen here belong to Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress

I was a photo geek long before I started crafting so I was absolutely giddy and speechless when a friend posted a link to an FSA gallery of color photographs. I'm really surprised that I haven't seen these images before. I feel like these color photos capture the hard times of the Depression so much better than some of the more recognizable black and white shots. I can almost feel all the dirt, dust, and sweat from that era. And those calico dresses are to die for!

You MUST take a peek and be sure to go all the way to the end. They definitely save one of the best photos for last. Link is HERE.
