Library Of Congress Photos On Flickr

Flickr: Photos from The Library of Congress
This is an amazing collection of photographs from the Library of Congress.  I was especially intrigued by the color photo collection from the 1930s and 1940s.  A lot of the images of  buildings from this era reminded me of Edward Hopper paintings, but the people in the photos are the most interesting subject matter of all.  BTW, I found this link via comment from The Sideshow. Here are my favorites from this fascinating collection:


Living Quarters And Juke Joint, Belle Grade, FL (1941)


Jack Whinery Family, Pie Town, NM (1940)


Jim Norris, Pie Town, NM (1940)


Negro Boy Near Cincinnati, OH (1942-43)

Mrs. Irma Lee McElroy, Corpus Christi, TX (1942)


M4 Tank Crew, Ft. Knox, KY (1942)


Japanese-American Internment Camp, Tule Lake Relocation Center, Newell, CA (1942-43)
