A Look Back in Time: May Day 1941   2 comments


For something different, I thought I’d share some photographs that came my way of a May Day Pageant in Siloam, a small town in Greene County, Georgia, May 1941.

All photographs were taken by Farm Security Administration photographer Jack Delano and are courtesy of the Library of Congress. They have been altered to increase the contrast, which was very dull (i.e., dark and flat) in the originals. I also increased the sharpness slightly.

Click on the photographs to see a larger view. Enjoy!
