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.
