America in Colour
by Green Bible Project
This is one of several photos featured in a blog by the Denver Post on a great collection of colour photos of the United States taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information between 1939 and 1943. The photos belong to the Library of Congress and were included in a 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.
Visually stunning, they’re also a great example of how historical photographs can be presented on the web in an uncluttered, unfussy way that lets the photographs tell their own stories. Here’s the link: http://blogs.denverpost.com/captured/2010/07/26/captured-america-in-color-from-1939-1943/
