Greendale Girls: 1939

Greendale Girls: 1939

September 1939. "Children who live at Greendale, Wisconsin, a model community planned by the Suburban Division of the U.S. Resettlement Administration." Medium format acetate negative by John Vachon for the Resettlement Administration. View full size.

 

Three green towns

Greendale was one of three Greenbelt communities; complete, ready-made towns constructed in Greenbelt, Maryland (near Washington, DC), Greenhills, Ohio (north of Cincinnati), and this one, in Wisconsin.

Greenbelt is a wonderful town, and still has a special character all its own.
