Looks like a hella cool time to be alive.
(But it'd be better if we could swap some of today's finer looking ladies for the ones in the pics. Just sayin'.)
Where are all the fat people?
They're all happy despite (or is it because of) the lack of diversity.
Thanks for sharing.
Those are cool pictures.
Regular coffee and lots of cigarettes.
Rooshkie Spy Photos ? ...
Helluva interesting era.
No tattoos or pierced people. No hood rats. No spray paint everywhere.
Looks like a foreign country...doesn't it?
(now you know why the older people are so p*ssed...right?)
Why no. It looks like America...
This comment is more important than people realize.
Look at picture 81 - its a large crowd. I looked pretty hard and can't find a single obese (or really overweight) person in the picture.
Although there does appear to be a guy right in the middle up front picking his nose.
Disregarding the fact most of these pictures were taken during WWII people today can't fathom how good they have it.
These were the years before fast food, cheap and plentiful processed sugar snacks and only one or two kinds of soft drinks.
People also did not have 200 channels, a huge tv, X-box and a computer to sit in front of. They worked outside...and with their hands more and were generally more physical in their daily efforts.
They actually had it pretty good in many aspects.
Yet, people are living longer now.
I live not too far from Pie Town. It looks about the same today as it did in those fine photos.
The Russell Lee FSA photographs taken in 1940 are world-famous for their depiction of ordinary Americans during the Depression. I have never seen them in color.
No creepy guys with their hair dyed red either.
Guys like the Colorado shooter were unheard of back then.
Because the news coverage sucked people still did horrible things back then to. This was a 2 min Google search to find this
Thanks for the link! I have only seen black and white photos from that time period so color really adds a new perspective. America was a great place before communist influence. Kind of surprising seeing so many kids without shoes though.
And they didn't have all the gun control laws back then that we do today -go figure.
Schools didn't have metal detectors at the door and armed cops stationed inside. The Lord's Prayer was likely repeated in class each day, and gay marriage wasn't even heard of, never mind preached. The young lady wearing the cross on a necklace probably wasn't just making a fashion statement -and it most likely wasn't made in China.
Fathers were present in those family photos (and any that were missing were most likely in the armed forces defending freedom). Our borders were defended back then too.
And there were no mosques in sight.
I think the news coverage was superior back then -at least it was PRO-American. There were no where near as many school shootings back then, and the few that did occur saw the perps get speedier and more appropriate justice, I dare say.
I've always disliked B&W photos because they seem less "real". Seeing things in color makes it much more relatable.
