From the Great Depression to World War II - photos from the American Memory collection

The American Memory collection contains more than 162,000 images taken between 1935 and 1944 by government-hired photographers. If you were to look at 100 of them per day, every day, you'd need more than four years to view them all. As a photographer, I consider these images nothing short of wondrous. This blog showcases some of them.

Two Horses and an Automobile

A farmer, a hired hand, two horses and an automobile. Old technology intersecting with new.

This is such a great shot. A perfect creative-writing jumping off point.

Photo taken in 1940 Arizona by Russell Lee.
