Shameless repost of a story on Fark (at least Edmorel is a regular there) - but immediately thought of SF for reasons that will be obvious in a moment. An Alumni of Indiana University and amateur photographer gave his picture collection to the university. They in turn published it on the web. These shots are noteworthy not for their composition, but that they're in color. The slice of life photos combined with familiar muted shades, grants the scenes a shockingly modern quality in their rendition. I find I have a swell of nostalgia for a time well before my own. Perhaps seeing the images as timeless makes them more personal, endearing me to them more than I had expected. http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/cushman/index.jsp The description dates the picture from 1940, with the added notation of "3 Bums...". Okay, so the shoes need some polish, but whoa, bums?! This guy would get many +1's on WAYWT How often do you see this many well dressed men in one spot? So from this to orange skin and spiked hair? Whatever it takes to impress the ladies I suppose... And this one because I love the notation: "Athletic girl with generous bosoms’’".
