 WPA Posters!

The WPA or Works Progress Administration provided a helping hand to many American citizens during the 1930′s.  Ravaged by the Depression and the resulting storm, the WPA provided stability where there was none.

These series of posters, which you can find online at the LOC Prints and Photographs Online Catalog bring back in color both the style of the times as well as general outlook on culture, news, home life and more.
