Amazing Depression Era Photos–In Color!

Before today, every image that I’d seen from the Great Depression was in sepia-toned black & white. This afternoon, The Daily Kos featured photos taken using Kodachrome, a durable color photography process invented in the late 1930’s. I’m stunned by the quality of the pictures.
