Amazing color photo exhibit

The Library of Congress has a new exhibit of 1600 color photos from 1935-1945. These are rare photos taken by photographers experimenting with new Kodachrome slide film technology. It is quite remarkable to see a time period we traditionally associate with black and white come to life in color. The LOC has painstakingly restored each of the photos. Here are some samples:

Woman painting airplane in factory.

More female factory workers.

Construction of Geneva Steel in Utah.

They have an online exhibit of selected photos here:


Or you can browse the entire collection here:


Highly recommended.
