America in Color

I don’t know about you, but when I think about America in the 40’s I automatically see black and white images in my head. I guess it’s a function of seeing too many old black and white movies and obviously not being alive during this incredibly tough period in our history.  Courtesy of the Denver Post, you can now see a fantastic collection of photos of the effects of the Depression on America‚Äôs rural and small town populations.

The past

This one of an old grocery store in Lincoln, Nebraska is my favorite. Enjoy the rest. Just goes to show you that great photos are great photos, no matter when they were taken or what technique or technology was applied.
