Beautiful pictures! The things that the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed were built to last. It's amazing how many beautiful walls, shelters, buildings, etc. they build that are still in existence after all these years.

Thank you, Sheryl. You might enjoy the Living New Deal series. It is part of a project of the University of California, Berkeley to document ever New Deal structure in the US, all in one place. I've been working with them for a couple of years. It is livingnewdeal.org if you want to check it out. You can look at all the locations by state/city, and find out what is near you!
