Visiting Cape Cod in the Late 1930's

One of the greatest photographic treasures we have as a country is the massive collection taken by a team of photographers from the 1930s through the early 1940s for the Office of War Information and the Farm Security Administration.  While many of these photos capture much of the hardship the nation was going through, scattered in the collections show some happier times.  These photos were taken by Edwin Rosskam as he visited Provincetown in the summers.
