… to announce to everyone here that you have absolutely no life since you can sit around at your computer waiting to be the first person to comment on a post.
All in all, it's great looking back, but I'll take my laptop, my hot tub, my cell phone & my modern medicine. I can always go primitive…kinda hard for them to technology up back then. Cool looking though…;) Ty Leo.
Agreed. People just seem a little soft these days.
beautiful pictures !! I love it !!
awesome pictures, but not having polio is pretty sweet…
Whoever did the color implementation on those B&W photos; I tip my hat to them.
2010 i love you
Some Huck Finn ass shit homey
Nice collection. But, why do I hear dueling banjos when looking at most of these?
I thought it might have been the voices in my head, but they have absolutely no musical talent whatsoever.
Love the pics… simpler times. We are so spoiled now…
lol "simpler"… i guess that' why they all look so happy -_-
True. You probably didn't see many grown ass men throwing tantrums at check out counters in those days.
I'll stay right where I am and enjoy my antibiotics and knowledge that hitler is still fucking dead.
12, I dare you to walk down that street and stay sober!!!!
Don't forget … many of the people in these pictures also yearned for the simpler times of the past.
(p.s.: so nice that I don't have to retype my name and email anymore!)
being dirt poor and being simple are two different things. cream puff chive boys
mmmmm . . . penny oranges.
They had color film in the 1940's. These are real color photos.
Love the pics. Nice job.
Well, they're a lot skinnier than today's Americans but they don't seem to smile as much…
Love it! Awesome post, Chive. Would love to see more of this.
These pictures look too nice to be that old. The quality and crispness of them is amazing. I'd have to imagine that some are just setup to look old… also since none of them are really candid.
the photos were crisp and clear back then in fact due to the size of the film they use better defined than 110 film we used today. Its just the old pics your thinking of were processed many years ago and the pictures deteriorate but the negatives tend to stay fine if preserved right so these may have been produced yesterday from old negatives
Also, most photos in those days were posed — not necessarily staged but definitely posed.
Might have been attitude, might have been film speed.
Not that funny, I only laughed a couple a times…
#16 is PURE Tom Sawyer
A lot of these pics show just how soft society is today. This generation could have never settled the western frontier or fought for WWII let alone work in a textile mill.
We could, we just don't.
I've seen all of these before. Can't remember where but most of them come from some article about how old color photography is. Chive, you gotta start giving credit where credit is due. Whether they can sue you or not, it's just the right thing to do.
I saw them from the denver post a few days ago, not sure if thats where they were originally published. Tells you the dates and locations too.
#19 same exact torches are still used today
