FSA Photo of the Week

I may as well just define a week to be 8 days long.

I like this one for its strong graphical qualities, the giant machine in the background has some great lines and so on, and the people in the foreground set that off nicely. I also like it because the machine in the background is so completely crazy. When did they hit upon the idea of simply making the bottom of the car open up?

Production. Copper. A rotary car dumper discharging copper ore at the Magna, Utah mill of the Utah Copper Company. Vast quantities of copper needed for war production are treated at the company's plants at Magna and Arthur. Shot by Andreas Feininger, some time between 1940 and 1946.
