As part of the "New Deal" response to the Great Depression of the 1930's, the federal government established the WPA (Works Progress Administration). An early priority of the Index was the cataloging of Shaker furniture, architecture, and craft. This photo was taken at Hancock Shaker Village and is a part of our upcoming exhibit A Promising Venture - Shaker Photographs From the WPA", opening May 25, 2012.
