Early Color Photographs

by porchlightportland

The Denver Post released this collection of stunning early color photographs taken between 1939- 1943 and we couldn’t resist sharing them with you here. At Porch Light you will find many antiques lovingly collected from this time period. Here is what the Denver Post has to say about this collection, “These images, by photographers of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, are some of the only color photographs taken of the effects of the Depression on America’s rural and small town populations.” Enjoy!
