How incredible are those photos? In 1946, at the age of 40, Todd Webb arrived back to the city after a posting as a Naval photographer in the Second World War. On his return he captured the beautifully vintage city in all its glory. It blows my mind that back then the Empire State Building was the tallest in town, five cents could get you a bag of fresh-roasted peanuts and the skyline looked so much different.
P.S: Also, 1940's NYC and Stanley Kubrick's vintage take on the city.
P:P.S: Last century.
