1941 New York City Comes Alive in Color (24 pics)

Posted in       3 Dec 2011       11465       8 GALLERY VIEW



Those of us who were not alive in the forties can only imagine what it looked like in real life. However, with these amazing 1941 color photos of New York City we can all enjoy those times from a much brighter perspective.

 

All images are taken from the Charles W. Cushman’s collection.

great city - lived there twice - never bought a TV - too many other things to do

Wish people still dressed in their finery while in public. I guess people don't do it so much now because they're rebelling against the status quo, and want to be an individual (to stand out), and there's nothing wrong with that, but we didn't used to wear suits and hats and dresses in public because we were brainwashed; we did it for each other. A well-dressed public feels more civilized.

I was about to say something similar to this.

It's really upsetting that it's "ok" for people to dress like idiots in public these days.
