    -1935. 8" x 38", framed to 9" x 40".
    -Minor fading, creasing, and soiling, else near fine.

    This rare 1935 Civilian Conservation Corps photograph, displayed in its original wood frame, includes the identification (written into the negative) "104th Company, C.C.C., Shawme Forest, Bourne, Mass., Paul M. Heverly, Capt. Commanding, 1935." One of FDR's most instantly visible New Deal programs, the CCC sprang into action just days after he moved into the White House in March 1933. The CCC organized unmarried and unemployed men into quasi-military units that restored and maintained forests, beaches, and state and national parks. Workers were paid $1 per day, plus free board and job training. By the end of 1935, 2,650 camps were operating in all 48 states.
