      Library of Congress releases 1,600 brilliant photos of America's World War
      II-era past
      The photos, capturing life in the then-48 states, show women working at
      plane plants, farmers surveying property and fairgoers having rousing fun.

      A government photo album is giving viewers a rare invitation into America's
      colorful past.

      The Library of Congress has released over 1,600 color images of American
      society, all snapped during the World War II era.

      The nostalgic photos, taken between 1939 and 1944, give viewers a look at
      different slices of life in the then-48 states, from women working at an
      airplane plant in California to farmers surveying their property in New
      Mexico.

      Several of the images, which were gathered by the Farm Security
      Administration/Office of War Information, provide a glimpse of the quaint
      Vermont State Fair, which was held in Rutland in 1941.

      The Vermont State Fair was originally a daylong celebration. However, it
      quickly expanded and, now in its 168th year, lasts two weeks.
