The Library of Congress just released extremely rare color photos that bring the era of America’s Great Depression to life like never before. The economic depression left a dark mark on millions of Americans during the 1930s in post-World War I. The Depression was followed by the Second World War, which marked the beginning of recovery for the United States.
The images in the slideshow above were taken by workers from the United States Farm Security Administration and the Office of War Information between the years 1939 and 1944, and offer a glimpse into a time typically only seen in black and white.
According to The Daily Mail, the photographs were first released in 2006 as a part of the Bound for Glory: America in Color exhibit by the Library of Congress.
Take a look in the slideshow above.
