The Great Depression remains one of the darkest periods of American history, and pictures from that time usually reflect the experience. They are – typically – grainy and black and white, giving a window into time defined by Hoovervilles, around the block unemployment lines, and people waiting for a piece of bread.Now the Library of Congress has released stunning new photographs that show the period in vivid color, showcasing the strength of families, the recovery of farming and the joys of state fairs as the nation emerged from a dark time.
