Remember this lady? Another great shot from a large colour photography archive. Photo by Alfred T. Palmer
Photographers are very lucky to have the internet. For searching and discovering new work it just can't be beat. I was checking through some of the photography blogs i subscribe to and, hey presto, a blogger happened to mention that a vast collection of the American colour photos (i mentioned a while back) were available on the a Library of congress Flickr page. Brilliant!
After a look through the vast collection i came across a photograph of a familiar face. The very lady whose photograph featured in the first America in Colour post. This time though, we get a great portrait of the lady herself. This collection of colour photographs is huge, around 1,615 to be exact, and cover a wide range of subjects dating from the late 1930's into the 1940's. The quality of the images are just first class.
