My father sent me a link to these awesome color photographs of rural America from 1939-1943. It’s amazing to see this era captured in color. It really makes everything come to life, and it’s interesting to see the color of the fabrics. It’s definitely worth a look.
At the end of the photos are some links to additional sets. I blogged about one of them before – the color photographs from Russia from 1905-1915.
Another is a set of photos of American cities pre-1950. Those aren’t in color, but they’re still pretty interesting. There was even one of a street in Salt Lake City in 1869.
The pictures are amazing! They bring back so much of what life was like in the “good ol’ days”. It doesn’t look so romantic up close and in living color, but it is fascinating.
I wasn’t too worry about all the feeds coming through as I knew what you were up to.
Aren’t those amazing photos?! 😀
They are wonderful.
I’ve seen the Russian ones before, but the other sets – wow!
I loved seeing the calico dresses.
Amazing pictures, they all look so lively!
ooooookay, just spent close to two hours looking at all the photos in these sets, and totally fascinated the whole time.
#45 in that last set… Warners’ Theatre.. loved the sigh “Refrigerated Washed-Air”.
