Check out the Documerica – Dave Falconer set on the National Archives flickr photostream. Falconer photographed the impact of the 1970s energy crisis on communities in Washington and Oregon state. It’s hard to imagine a time when business dimmed neon lights during the day or school children rode bikes to field trips because there was not enough gas for school buses. Visit flickr Commons to review the full set and read the photographer’s detailed captions.

God that kodachrome is unreal. There’s nothing like it.
