Print this giant archival color photo for less than $25.

This beautiful, painting-like image is from the Chicago rail yards in 1947. Taken by Farm Security Administration photographer Jack Delano, the image creates a depiction of another time, that is still oddly contemporary 66 years later. It could be from 1950, or a Blade Runner-esque distopian future.

This image is availabe to print all the way up to 18″x24″, which is a nice sized piece to fit on a wall. It's also available in 11″x14″, like the other Free Art Downloads.
