Yale Released 170,000 Photos Of Depression-Era America

The photos taken by Farm Security Administration photographers in the 1930s are some of the most iconic images in American history. Unseen photos in government archives tell a more complex story of a struggling country. Yale just released a terrific database of 170,000 of them.

You'll see a map of the United States where each county is clickable. Simply find the area you want to explore, just as you might on Google Maps, and the interactive database will show you photos spanning from 1935 to 1945.
