The Great Depression In Color



In a scene reminiscent of a Winslow Homer painting, children gathered shoreside in Stonington, Connecticut in November, 1940. At that point, the Great Depression had ground on for 10 long years. The photograph is from the Library of Congress and made by Jack Delano for the Farm Services Administration.
