Description: Works Progress Administration motion picture projectionist at the Tacoma Armory, circa 1937. Man looking at reel of film, sign reading "USA Work Program WPA", many children in background. The poster is a typical graphic from the WPA. The WPA was created in May of 1935. The letters originally stood for Works Progress Administration, which later became the Works Projects Administration. The New Deal program provided jobs and income to the unemployed during the Great Depression. It was shut down in later 1943, as defense industries eliminated unemployment during World War II. (T.
