St. Louis, Missouri, circa 1900. “Broadway north from Olive Street.” A nice view of the Homeopathic Pharmacy sign. 8×10 glass negative.


Washington, D.C., circa 1925. “Semmes Motor Co. — Hellmann’s truck.” Back when mayonnaise delivery was a thing. 8×10 inch glass negative.


December 1940. “Children in the tenement district, Brockton, Massachusetts.” These houses, which look to have been built in the 1890s, must have been imposing in their day. Note the elaborate woodwork and intricate system of gutters and downspouts. Kodachrome transparency by Jack Delano.
