    You would be hard pressed to find a better collection of vintage color photography anywhere, kudos to the people over at the Denver Post...


    Make sure you view them all via Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 – Plog Photo Blog

    Thanks for the link. There's some really great stuff there.

    In fact, all of the FSA stuff is pretty great.

    The American people of the 1930's paid for these images. They certainly should be in the public domain.

    True and stunning documentary photography that captures the era in a sympathetic but honest way, if only many working professionals still had the same work ethic today.
