Residents of Vale, Oregon, near the Idaho border, prepare for the Pledge of Allegiance in this 1941 photo by Russell Lee. Little did they know of the events coming in the next six months, including the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entry into World War II. Russell was one of a number of photographers hired by the federal government to document rural life at that time. His Oregon photos in particular communicate the experiences of folks of that era. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
