this series of pictures describing life in America before Pearl Harbor at the time when color photography became widely available. Even though I know much has changed, I still found it somewhat startling to realize all the social and economic shifts that have taken place in a couple of generations.
After looking at these pictures, I realize how difficult it is to imagine the world in which my grandchildren will be seniors themselves. Certainly very different. Better? Maybe, but I have my doubts . . .
