Have these been posted here before?
I found them fascinating for the content, as well as the color.

Hey now, you can do that "vintage thing" in Photoshop:)

Interesting find, there!

Thank you, I love old photos especially from that era.

Thanks for posting this, looking at the prices on the window in picture #30 of the grocery is depressing in itself. And Rice Krispies with no Snap, Crackle or Pop? That had to be depressing too. :lol::lol:

There are a few excellent pictures there. Lots of good info for model builders to use as well.

It says they are reproduced from color slides.

Very nice photos though, good to look through.
