Rare FSA Color Photographs


The Farm Security Administration was best documented by amazing black & white photographs but a few color images were captured and they bring a whole new life to these images of the American depression and war effort.

The Library of Congress' Flickr page has a ton more color photos - so great!

I've been in love with Jack Delano's work for the FSA-OWI for awhile now. You can see a tonne of it on Shorpy.

Never really noticed Alfred Palmer before, but after seeing the pic you posted and assuming it was Delano, I'll have to look at more of his stuff. Thanks!
