I always prefer to use vintage negatives, photos and slides to show a more accurate view from the streets, but sometimes the only option I have is a postcard. Like this one from the B & B Chevrolet Dealership, in Detroit (MI).
Sorry for long time without updates. I was busy at work and take a trip to Uruguay and Argentina for a month with my wife. Now I’m back with new updates in a regular basis.
For now, have a look in this photography from Times Square in 1957. When I bought this slide I miss any information about the year of the photo. But the movie “Fire Down Below” and the old Hotel Claridge (left side, at southeast corner of Broadway and 44th street) give me the right idea.
Two different views from the same crossroad in 1955 and nowadays at Philadelphia
Not many changes in this view in the last 58 years, all the buildings remains the same. The stores are a little different from 1955 to now and we can notice this corner of the city looks like is pretty quiet until today.
