Below is a link to a blog that has COLOR photos from 1939-1943. I got this off of ClickinMoms and just can't stop looking.
To be able to connect back to a time that I can only otherwise READ about is amazing. It really helps to understand that those times were real and those were/are real people. Photos are our outlet to freeze time and let those 70 years from now know what our lives were like. I just love it. It's so much more than just taking pretty pictures.
