"Where are the ships?"
and 59 other WWII-era illustrated envelopes
are now available for viewing through the Veteran's History Project.
Another smaller set of gorgeous
illustrated envelopes from the same era is available here
, all depicting scenes from the life of G.I.s stationed in the Pacific.
The New Orleans WPA Photograph Collection
exclusively shows photographs of depression-era projects from Louisiana, so there's a whole set of WPA projects -- from the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge
, to venerated Doubleday Field
, to the beautiful but obscure Border Station in Naco, AZ
-- that you just won't see here. Nevertheless, if you take the time to explore this site you will
find some truly wonderful photographs
. Some are more technical surveyor-style photographs, but others are akin to the realist style being carved out at the time by folks like Walker Evans
, who actually did do some photography for the Farm Security Administration
(another New Deal-era project).
