La plupart des photos des années 1930-1940 sont en noir et blanc et nous renvoient une image monochrome de cette époque.

Toutefois, cette série de photos commandée par le gouvernement États-Unis lors de la Seconde Guerre mondiale nous montre en couleur la vie des Américains au cours du conflit.

Le catalogue complet de la Librairie du Congrès américain comprend 1 600 photos. Nous vous en présentons une courte sélection ici. Vous pouvez consulter l'ensemble des photos ici.

Le diaporama est disponible en anglais, uniquement.

À consulter aussi ci-dessous, un diaporama des enfants américains dans les années 1940.
