This Is What Life Looked Like In North Carolina In 1936. WOW!

In 1936 North Carolina, the aftershock of the Great Depression was still very much present. Many families and farmers signed up for the FSA Resettlement Administration (established just a year earlier) which included loans and land in return for working on government-owned property. While FSA practices came under fire for quite sometime, one thing they did manage to do was bring in amazing photographers to capture this important part of North Carolina history. These pictures are simply fascinating.
