A New Way to Appreciate the Old

 

From 1935-1944, the Farm Security Administration — Office of War Information (FSA-OWI) undertook the largest photography project ever sponsored by the federal government.  In order to build support for and justify government programs, the Historical Section set out to document America. The FSA-OWI produced some of the most iconic images of the Great Depression and World War II.  Through Photogrammar you can view the 170,000 photographs in the collection.  Using a cool interactive map, you can even search photographs in certain areas and see what life was like in your hometown back in the day.
