A link with amazing color photographs from the Library of Congress came to me this morning from Murray via his friend Joe Binder. The photos are of the WWII years, “some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America‚Äôs rural and small town populations..”

After enjoying the long array, I found at the bottom of the page a list of links to more early color photos on other subjects. Heaven. The links are all to the Denver Post’s photo blogs.
