Color photograph of a Washington DC street in 1940
A friend put me on to this marvelous website called Retronaut. It’s old photography from all over the world, plus some old film footage and other old things, like maps showing the changing shape of Africa. The pictures are arranged in thematic capsules. There are color pictures from London at the end of World War I, Dior models on a photo shoot in the USSR of the 50s, NASA astronauts practicing the space walk, pictures of Chicago by Stanley Kubrick taken in 1949–and more. Check it out!
Really great pictures!! Your website is always interesting to read–and since you have begun to post photos–great to look at !!
