He was that dude


There’s a whole lotta personality coming through in this pic. Endless swag for days, I
bet everybody on the block knew who these guys were. 1940’s photobooth.

The Que Que Club


A 1930’s high yellow social club of mostly mulattos.
It’s really crazy how these little ‘clubs’ were allowed to exist and thrive
back then….well for all I know it could still be going on today , but on
the low. In any event, it’s history so it will be included in this
on-line collection.

The strong silent type


This picture is giving me Billy Dee Vibes, LOL. Very handsome young
man dressed in formal suit and bow tie, probably worked in a nightclub
band or was patronizing as they call it ‘a fancy joint’. Most
likely the 1920’s.

She held him down


Nice looking and well-dressed, not sure if they are a young couple
or just relatives. They do resemble each other some what. Could be
middle class relations as they don’t give me couple vibe. Both
have a serious demeanor. Could have had a few words before the photo;
as their attitudes reflect in the picture. 1900’s.

Rooftop Antics


Two young girls clowning around on a city rooftop in their swinsuits.
I believe these two girls are Puerto Ricans that lived in uptown
Manhattan or the Bronx in the late 1930’s or early 40’s.

They’re not having it


Two little boys who won’t cooperate with the photographer, one young man is
not feeling it and the other little kid to the left is just too animated for
him to get a good shot.  1940’s

City life – on the stoop


Family and other kids from the neighborhood or apartment building sitting
out on the stoop. Most people do this who live in cities when it’s too
hot to stay in the apartment. Early 1950’s.

Looks like me


I found this to be a very interesting photo of a
young man holding a black male doll. Obviously pre-action figure
because the doll has on a suit and tie. The little boy wasn’t quite
ready for his pictures because his tie is undone, probably too
excited about his toy.
