Flag Day and the WPA

(The description for this photograph reads, "The NYC Flag Project, sponsored by the U.S. Army with the U.S. Navy as a cooperating agency, has as its object the restoration and preservation of historic battle flags. Here WPA workers are shown mending some of the tattered, faded, and battle stained emblems." This photograph was taken between 1935 and 1943, and is provided courtesy of the National Archives and the New Deal Network.)
