Slide Away........

I was blown away when our kid sent me a link to these 'slides' dating back to the early 40's and from the FARM SECURITY ADMINISTRATION. Always been used to seeing the Walker Evans & Dorothea Lange stuff, not familier with the work of the photographers featured here though. Look at the quality, even on screen, stunning. There's loads, so take your time. (IMAGES PROPERTY OF THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS).

"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"..... HERE for more
