Perhaps everyone has already seen this already, but I’m on hour twenty-something digging through these photos and wanted to share on the off-chance someone hasn’t yet.. The photos are from the Library of Congress and were taken during the Great Depression and World War II and are organized via Photogrammer by location. I’m loving the format of searching by State. See them all, here..
