Part of a set from a Library of Congress collection of public domain photographs taken in color in the early 1940's with cameras using larger formats than 35mm. Titles can be searched on the LOC site or by going to Flikr and searching under the title "Library of Congress." Photographs have been cropped slightly and the color and contrast adjusted to be more favorably displayed.

I believe the photographer's name was John Vachon. This one of so many fine images taken this era; MikeZ.

This was taken by a photographer hired by the United States government to document rural America in the late 1930's. The photograph is in the public domain.
