Photo from the US National Archives
The Denver Post has a lovely collection of large images of different cities in the United States that date back to pre-1950 era. Lots of factories, small towns/villages, and people looking real dapper in their suits and dresses. Pretty amazing photos all around, you gotta check it out.
PS: I posted the image above from the collection because I’ve seen it posted all over Tumblr lately with zero credit, and now I just happen to find out where the image was taken from. So there.
