Нью-Йорк до кондиционеров 1920-1970 гг..

Частые упрёки , что нет сравнительных фотографий тех времён иностранных городов, подтолкнули к публикации фотографий Нью-Йорка

Relaxed: Perched atop a rock in the north end of the Central Park Lake in 1944 are children who take frequent dips while others enjoy boating
