Oh wow. Oh wow.
These color slides taken from 1939 - 1943 are breathtaking. Simply incredible. They were taken to show the effects of the Great Depression upon rural areas of America.
The slides whoosh me back to a long ago decade, they are so real. And yet....... when I look into the unsmiling eyes and gaze around at the poverty, I determine, more than ever, that referring to the 1930's and 40's as The Good Old Days is, well, not too wise.
These are The Good Old Days. These, now, in 2010. And what are you doing now to make your Good Old Days more memorable?
Let me know what you thought of the old slides, ok?
