From 1970 to 1977 the EPA hired professional photographers to document images relating to the environment, the EPA, and ordinary life in America. The collection, called Documerica, consists of thousands of disparate images most of which have seemingly little to do with the environment. But the project is an amazing time capsule of American life in the late 20th century. More than 15,000 of these photographs are available for public viewing on the National Digital Archive. Happy hunting.
