Bound For Glory: America in Color

Bound For Glory is an exhibition by the Library of Congress.From website:
"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. These vivid scenes and portraits capture the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations, the nation’s subsequent economic recovery and industrial growth, and the country’s great mobilization for World War II."
It is simply unbelievable. The above photo, by Marion Post Wolcott, was taken in Louisiana in August of 1940.
