    Posted on Twitter by Michael Beschloss. Usually the pictures posted from this era are from New York, San Francisco or Chicago. Many of these buildings still stand today. City Hall, Lit Brothers.

    Maybe it's just me......

    But the photo gives to me the impression of the city being kind of dirty, the street looks dirty, the air looks dirty. But then I look down at the bottom right hand corner, and the kid walking down the sidewalk, and can't help but notice how spotless that sidewalk is.
