The year is 1939. Yesterday, we featured a photo of a “Sharp Dressed Man”, by New York City street photographer, Helen Levitt. Today’s feature is by another female shutterbug, Farm Security Administration (FSA) photographer, Marion Post Wolcott. Marion spent the winter of 1939-40 in the snowy New England village of Woodstock, Vermont. Woodstock in the 1930s was a sleepy little farming community.

Today, it is a very popular ski resort. In 1934 the first ski tow in America was built at Woodstock – and winter tourism in the area boomed overnight. Today, the village looks remarkably like the one Marion Post Wolcott visited in 1939.
