Photography: Rare Photos Of The Great Depression

The Great Depression Photographs

In keeping with my plan to present one post with extraordinary photography to you each day, today I bring you some very rare photographs taken during The Great Depression. The reason these are rare is because, as you probably know, most of the photos taken during that time were in black and white. These are in beautiful color.

These particular photos belong to the Library of Congress, and they were included in a 2006 exhibit called Bound for Glory: America in Color. They were taken by photographers who worked for the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information.

When I look at these extraordinary pictures, I wonder what these people were thinking at that moment. In almost all their faces I see stress and worry. Whenever I think about that time in history, it makes me realize how blessed we truly are. I can’t imagine having to stand in line to get food, or losing all my money because the banks closed. I wish I had talked to my grandmother more before she died about what it was like to live during that time. During those years, people had a lot of courage and determination to face life head on while experiencing such economic adversity that was out of their control. Amazing.
