Shorpy World War II Photos-- Part 1

Taken from the Shorpy historical photo blog. Most every month, Shorpy.com has several pictures taken during World War II. These are some you might be interested in looking at, and if you do, make sure you check out the comments as the blog has many dedicated followers who greatly add to the picture's background. These are blog dates and headlines. //// 12-6-13: SOUTH PARK: 1945-- The Pine Ford Acres Community Building in Middletown, Pennsylvania. This was part of a 450-unit residential development on 51 acres for the Federal Works Agency and Federal Public Housing Authority. The workers in war industries needed places to live and a huge construction boom began, I have written a lot about the public housing in my Wilmington entries in this blog. //// --GreGen
