America in color photos, 1939-1943

The Library of Congress is a national treasure as far as we’re concerned. So many amazing resources for teaching students about the American experience over the years.

We came across this amazing online exhibit, Bound for Glory: America in Color, and wanted to highlight a few as well as providing the link to the entire exhibit.

Taken by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information (FSA/OWI), there are 70 amazing images of the effects of the Great Depression and WWII available online.
