History was not black and white

Poverty's Pallette

Most younger people's visions of America of the 1930's is the bleak, black and white photographs "created by the New Deal-sponsored photographers who traversed the country in the 1930's and early 1940's," Unknown to most of us, though, are the color photographs that were created when Kodak released its color film products in the mid-1930's.

This collection of photographs helps to clarify the realities and look of everyday life from that period, without the bias that black and white photos have given to our remembrance.
