And while we're on the subject...
The Library of Congress is getting very technorati, putting some of its images up on Flickr. These are more of my favorites both by Dorothea Lange. The "Migrant Mother" is probably the most famous photograph to come out of the WPA project. The WPA (Works Project Administration) provided jobs for photographers and artists, documenting the depression and doing public work projects.
I love the other Lange image here. To me, "Toward Los Angeles" is a perfect expression of depression era America.
