Hundreds of Historic Photos of Buffalo Released

by   / Oct. 8, 2015 11am EST
Yale recently digitized and released over 170,000 photos taken by the Farm Security Administration during the Great Depression, and 331 of them were from Buffalo and Erie County. The photos, which primarily document the lives of everyday laborers and their families in Buffalo, were originally meant to gin up support for New Deal-style government programs, many of which had just been thrown out by the courts.

The interactive map is so cool. 

Search old historical areas of your families or where you want to see how it used to look. I found this one searching my county in Louisville (Jefferson county) and its by the MIssissippi river! How cool!

Have fun everyone!!

Wow, I am fascinated by these. My family is from the Texas Panhandle (in the center of the Dust Bowl), and they were farmers. My husband's family is from Oklahoma. We've enjoyed looking at the photos. Thanks for posting the link!
