Virginia: A Guide to the Old Dominion

The cover of Virginia: A Guide to the Old Dominion (1940) features the Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg. This travel guide was produced by the Virginia Writers' Project, a part of the Works Progress Administration (after 1939, the Works Projects Administration), a federal agency established by U.S. president Franklin D. Roosevelt to help combat the economic impact of the Great Depression.
