Yale University just released a big ol' batch of 170,000 photos taken by the Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information between 1935 and 1945. The photos span the country from big cities to small towns, illustrating Americans at work, home, and play. Some people are taking this release of photos as an opportunity to remind us all of how badass our ancestors were, but we prefer to remind you of something different: that our ancestors liked getting sloppy on beer just as much as we do.
