The Great Depression In Color

Louise Rosskam made these photographs in 1941 in the nation's Capitol. Above, the neighborhood market on the corner of N and Union Street NW, and below, a young boy walks the same neighborhood.

These photographs are from the Library of Congress, part of their collection of uncommon color photographs made for the WPA during the Great Depression.
