Color Photos of the Great Depression

The Denver Post Photo Blog has an amazing set of photos - Captured: America in Color from 1939-1943 - from the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress.  They are reproductions from color slides taken by the US Farm Security Administration from 1939-1943.  The photos are from all over the country, including some from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.  I think my favorite photo from the set is a real life "Rosie the Riviter," I love how her face is mirrored in the side of the "Vengeance" dive bomber.
