Recently some spectacular color photos of farm and rural life in the 30’s and 40’s has been circulating around the internet. 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 2006 exhibit Bound for Glory: America in Color.
A couple of the photographs are from Colorado. Members in Delta County Farm Bureau might recognize the scenery!
