More America in Color

Alfred T. Palmer, TVA's Douglas Dam, Tennessee, 1942.
Last week I stumbled upon some more pictures made for the Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information. I found out that the complete FSA-OWI Collection consists of 1,600 color and 16,400 black-and-white photographs. Amazing.. Here is a small selection. The complete collection can be viewed at the website of the Library of Congres.

John Vachon, Pennsylvania Shipyards, Beaumont, Texas, 1943.

Alfred T. Palmer, Douglas Aircraft Company, Long Beach, California, 1942
William Rittase, Pioneer Parachute Company, Manchester, Connecticut, 1942
