More Kodachrome™ Documentation of the Disastrous F.D.R. Years


A conservative blog for peace brings to our attention hundreds more photos like the ones posted yesterday — 1930s-40s in Color.

I'm struck by the clear superiority of Kodachrome imagery over that produced by most digital cameras, and the even clearer superiority of the hair and clothing styles of that era. Whig history debunked again.

The United States Farm Security Administration (FSA) was later named the Office of War Information (OWI)?! Wow, talk about mission creep.

No, televisions, no iPods, no Gameboys, no Internet (ironic I know), people actually had to talk to each other...I hear they knew how to tell stories, and to sing.

It's funny a lot of the houses look like they need a paint job depression era correct?

But the people seem spiritually richer, like they actually use their yard.

mcmlxix, indeed.

Faustina, I noticed that "need[ing] a paint job" quality myself. I remember a lot of the old barns I'd see in Upstate New York looked pretty much the same in the '70s and '80s as the photos indicated they already looked in the '30s. I assumed they would have been new(er) then.

Mcmlxix: Without the allusions to contemporary technology, that's a line that could have been taken straight out of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451.
