Photos from The Great Depression

A couple of people recently sent me a link to a Google album containing images of the US during The Great Depression. The album provided no captions, but I think WPA photographers captured the images. 

The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was a depression-era agency whose purpose was to provide jobs for the unemployed. At its peak the WPA employed more than 3 million Americans. The agency's projects were widely varied. They included the arts as well as conventional commercial/business endeavors. The arts group produced murals, posters, plays, and photographs, among other products. A large number of the photographs are now recognized for their aesthetic, as well as historical value.
