A new exhibit both online and in realspace at the Library of Congress: Bound for Glory: America in Color

Bound for Glory: America in Color is the first major exhibition of the little known color images taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information. These vivid scenes and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations, the nation’s subsequent economic recovery and industrial growth, and the country’s great mobilization for World War II.

It’s really really cool to see photos from this era in color; it really changes one’s perspective.
