Soup Kitchen - Great Depression Featured

I'm currently working on a number of different colour conversions of old black & white photos, some famous images, some relatively unknown, but the one thing they have in common is that they generally are of a historic era in time. It was whilst searching through online archives that I came across this image of men eating bread and soup in a breadline during the Great Depression in the USA. To think that this happened in relative modern history and that just a few years later the world would be plunged into a second world war, the gaunt, filthy and dejected appearance of these men seems all the more shocking and even more so in colour.

My colour conversion can be viewed below.
