Organizing my vintage slides from Chicago this morning I found this photograph, taken by an unknown author, showing the Chicago Skyway Toll Bridge in 1965.
How about look inside one of the most famous stores in the United States and New York in October 1968? The following picture shows the third floor of the store:
I really love when I found slides from travellers. They always show some interesting pictures of public places in a more relaxed way than taken by locals, since tourists always have a different way of portraying the city.
This slide from december 1970 shows a commom everyday scene of Philadelphia. And for many people not be worth a photo, but worth to these three people: one stop to eat some pretzels.
One of my favorites cities in America is Boston. I just visited once in 2012, for a week, but I can’t wait to return. Maybe in 2014 yet…
The following picture shows the Old State House, right in downtown. I believe the two ladies in dresses are together with who take the photo. There is no mention about who is those women in the slide’s frame, the photographer just take note about the month (june) and the year (1961).
Happy 2014 folks! We are back with a new city added to our blog: Atlanta (GA).
The following picture is from 1970 and show a very different West Peach Street Northwest.
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).
This is the postcard from 1954:
We are back to Philadelphia, this time with a great photography from West Girard Avenue with North 5th Street.
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.
