Rare Color Photos From WWII

November 21, 2012 - Ben Klein
The Library of Congress has posted nearly 1,600 rare color photos taken by the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information Color Photographs.

According to the Library of Congress, "Photographers working for the U.S. government's Farm Security Administration (FSA) and later the Office of War Information (OWI) between 1939 and 1944 made approximately 1,600 color photographs that depict life in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The pictures focus on rural areas and farm labor, as well as aspects of World War II mobilization, including factories, railroads, aviation training, and women working."

The website Visual News has selected some photographs here.

I tooka quick look through the group and these five caught my eye.

The complete collection from the Library of Congress is available here.
