Rare Color Photos from the Depression Era

These color photos were taken during the Great Depression and World War II by photographers working for the United States Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) between 1939 and 1944. The FSA/OWI pictures depict life in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, with a focus on rural areas and farm labor, as well as aspects of World War II mobilization, including factories, railroads, aviation training, and women working.
