“Bound for Glory”: America in Color from 1939-1943

“These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations. The photographs are the property of the Library of Congress and were included in a 2024 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.”
