This Marion Postt Wolcott photograph was taken in Wendell and is part of the Eyes on Main Street show.

Eyes on Main Street is featuring “The Old North State” photographs from the Farm and Security Administration shot in North Carolina during the 1930s and ‘40s in its Goldsboro Gallery until April 30.

This collection of photographs belonging to the Library of Congress is accessible to all online.

Eyes on Main Street has made a selection of 32 photographs by Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange and John Vachon, among others.

Those visiting the show will discover Rocky Mount or Goldsboro before World War II, when tobacco was driving the state economy and social life and warehouses and farms were central to daily life.

The gallery is located at 126-128 Goldsboro St. S.

Hours are noon to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays.
