These stunning photos taken by Marion Post Wolcott for the United States Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information (FSA-OWI) give us a glimpse of an interesting time in our state’s history. In 1939, things were starting to improve for some, but the Great Depression was still in full swing in many areas. The captions have been provided below the photographs.
