American 1940’s…in COLOUR!

These fascinating photos from the Library of Congress have been unearthed, showing America in color, in the 1940’s as she rose up from Depression.

Amazing how a story comes to life with just one photo. Child Labour, war efforts, race, propaganda, poverty & growing wealth. You could run a history class with these!

I especially love this map of Africa, and how the countries were demarcated!

  1. It's amazing how instead of these photos making movies based in the era seem more realistic the movies make these photos seem more fake.
