The US Library of Congress released over 1,600 color photographs from the USA's  World War II era, past. Usually photographs from that time period were in black and white not  in color.  The images were made between 1939 and 1944.  The  pictures depict life in the United States, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, with a focus on rural areas and farm labor, as well as aspects of World War II mobilization, including factories, railroads, aviation training, and women working.
