A beautiful gift format Then and Now featuring vintage color pictures from the 1940s to the 1970s.
This mini hardback New York Then and Now is a new addition to the bestselling series that takes archive photos in vintage color from the 1940s, '50s, '60s, and '70s and pairs them with the same view today. This book helps dispel the myth that New York was filled up with yellow cabs in the 1950s--there were many colors back then--with vivid images in Kodachrome.
Sites include the Guggenheim, Times Square, Manhattan from Governors Island, the Empire State Building, Central Park Children's Zoo, Grand Central Terminal, Sugar Ray Robinson's restaurant, Mayflower Doughnuts, Radio City, and many more.
