Amazing photo. I bet people smelled awful
i love old new york pics....it certainly was very different then. mulberry street is now inhabited by well-off hipsters.
fishysausage would comment on smell
Smelled like a Zoo Za Zoo
progress is good
its amazing to see that those people were into selfies too. Guess their one shot at mortality.
They are all long dead and buried. Even the kids who lived to be 90.
Were people a lot uglier in the olden days??
Kids looked filthy but yea really cool.
Imagine the Eastern-European bush hiding under those petticoats.
Life expectancy in those days was around 42 for men and 45 for women, they were definitely rougher folks.
Though high infant and child mortality skewed those numbers somewhat.
Some of those kids don't even have shoes.
my first thought as well
Not as bad as your average welfare queen of today.
I love seeing old photos colorized. When everything we see from that period is black and white, it's hard to get a real feel for what it really looked like. Turns out, things had color back then too. Who knew?
have you seen Howard Stern?
Actually a little bit better than that, 1900 life expectancy was 47 men, 49 women. If you made it to 65 your life expectancy was 12 years. This was for White Men and Women. Blacks expectancy was 33 and 34.
Smasians. Have some respect.
