In Colo(u)r

The Denver Post is sharing colour, Depression-era photos on one of its photo blogs (plogs). These are some of the only colour photos from that time, taken of people in rural areas. I love how the colour adds an emphasis and a grittiness, giving a new layer, even dimension, to a history we’ve seen only in black and white.
