Bound For Glory: America In Color


I have always enjoyed looking at old photographs. I am a big fan of history and what captures an era's mood better than a photograph? So I was thrilled to find this link describing an exhibition of color phot0graphs from the late 1930s early 1940s.

Check out more amazing pictures here.

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 (FSA/OWI). Comprised of seventy digital prints made from color transparencies taken between 1939 and 1943, this exhibition reveals a surprisingly vibrant world that has typically been viewed only through black-and-white images.


Pretty cool huh?
