Alfred Palmer, TVA Douglas Dam, Tennessee, June 1942

You know I’m a sucker for for the Office of War Information and Farm Security Administration images from the ’40s. There are so many amazing pictures in the public domain, and many are available in high quality scans from the Library of Congress. I like the color kodachrome 4×5s, because what’s not to like?

I found a good site to peruse a bunch last night, and went to town. I’m looking for one of these to print and hang. I like these two.



Jack Delano, Proviso yard, Chicago, 1942
