Photo by Russell Lee (American, 1903-1986)

“Abandoned Garage On Highway #2, Western North Dakota, 1937/c1940s. Vintage silver gelatin photograph, typed title, photographer’s Farm Security Administration (FSA) credit stamp, FSA return stamp and numeric annotations in pencil in an unknown hand verso, 17.9 x 24.2cm. Minor wear to edges of margins.

The Farm Security Administration (FSA) was created during the Depression to combat rural poverty. It became famous for its small but highly influential photography program, 1935-44, which realistically portrayed the challenges of rural poverty.”
