Color Photographs of Male Workers During WWII

From 1939-1944 the Office of War Information (OWI) sent a few photographers, armed with 35mm Kodachrome slides, to capture in brilliant color the work these men and women were doing. These photographs, some of the only color shots taken during WWII, were then documented and preserved by the Library of Congress. All 1600 of them are available both through their online catalog and flickr photostream.
