Outstanding photos. That photo of the women on lunch break could be Van Gogh's Potato Eaters.

Wow, I need to bookmark that and look a little closer.

Our modern digital ultra expensive cameras take better pictures in what way? There is something about the color of old film that just glows.

Striking -- you know what stands out most to me? Not one single obese kid or adult.... not even any overweight people (except for that guy in the background of picture 12). I know that the depression left its marks but jeez, has all the extra calorie-packing since then realy translated into happier, healthier people?

Just my 2 cents....

Awesome. My favorite is the shot of the welder but they're all pretty amazing.

The school lunch program was started in the USA when the draft in WWII was turning up a bunch of young men who were malnourished.

Very cool link!

I'm going to have to take those a few at a time, they deserve a good study.

Interesting. Didn't know that.

Other thing is that the subjects of the photos were poor, and this was -- I'm assuming -- before McD's, Big Gulps, Doritos, HFCS, etc.
