A TVA Album: The Early Years, 1933-46 by the National Archives Southeast Region
On May 18, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Tennessee Valley Authority Act, a major piece of his New Deal program. Designed to raise the standard of living in an impoverished area, the agency’s work touched the lives of most people living in the region. The images in this postcard set portray the shared struggles and triumphs of "regular folk" whose lives were changed forever by the Tennessee
Valley Authority. See them at Work. See them at Worship. See them at Rest. Enjoy the simplicity and humanity of another time!
Album includes 21 postcards with captions from the original TVA photographs
