Jack Delano, Chicago Photographer

During the late 1930's and early 1940's Jack Delano worked for the Farm Security Administration Photography Program.  He made some amazing imagery mainly focused around the train scene in Chicago.  I'd love to write a bit more about what these photographs mean to this fine city but unfortunately I'm between air planes and road trips right now and the car isn't going to pack it's self!

I will do my best to come back and caption these photographs at a later time!


  1. These are wonderful photos! It would be great if you'd credit the Library of Congress as the source so people can find these and others on the Library's website.

  2. The prints, at least some, are available on the Library of Congress web site, royalty-free, in high definition digital content (.tiff).
