Seeing The Great Depression Anew

The Library of Congress offers us access to the incredible photographs of the Farm Security Administration. These iconic photos (over 175,000) have been digitized and tagged and made available to us all. But wait, it gets better. Yale University has taken this data and enriched it in a new project called Photogrammar.  The photos can now be explored by photographer, where the photo was taken, and by theme. More tools are still in the works.
