I've never seen this posted before, but if you've never seen this, it's from the Library of Congress. It's an excellent collection of color photographs from the Depression up until the 2nd World War.

There's some great Detroit content as well. Use the Geographic Location search, and it's right there under Michigan.

I particularly like this one. Look how wide the sidewalks are!

The FSA was a goverment agency that employed artists, writers and photographers to document American Life in the 1930's/40's.
Imagine thousands of scowling Republicans denouncing this wretched waste of tax dollars. Then look at the photos and enjoy.
