This Is What Life In Florida Looked Like In The 1940s. WOW.

These stunning photos taken by the United States Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information (FSA-OWI) give us a glimpse of an interesting time in Florida’s history. With the nation still recovering from the Great Depression and entering the Second World War, it may have been a simpler time, but it surely wasn’t an easier time. The captions and dates have been provided below the photographs.
