I love these photos. It’s so damn interesting to see how lived our ancestors ;)

Edit: Many of you wrote that these pics were not from 1960's. I didn't find these same photos anywhere else other than the source where it was noted "60's." Butwe changed the title though.
If you have more information, let us know. Thanks.

These pics are not from the 1960`s. They were taken in the 1930`s and some in the 1940`s. Look at the cars and trucks in the photos. Before World War 2, cars and trucks had fenders distinct from the car body. After the war, fenders were molded into the body style. And the pics of the aircraft are all types thst were built for use in the war. After the war they were all junked.

jaris,

then your school needs new books. these pictures span a time frame of mid 1920's to late 1940's.

as a point of information, all major railroads ended operation of steam locomotives by the mid 1950's and switched to diesel locomotives. i see 3 steam locomotives in these pictures.

and the public wasn't urged to buy war bonds after ww2.

These are World War II era pictures. The propaganda posters promoting sales of war time bonds are a dead give-away, as are the female laborers in another picture.
Also, if ever you see a poster for something like a cola (be it Coca-Cola, RC, or Nehi) in a photo, you can look up when those adverts were posted and get an approximate date. In fact, I've used that method many a time as an archaeologist and historian. :]

These are all taken from the book "Bound for glory : America in color, 1939-43". Shame on the original poster for ripping off the author like this!

The picture of "Frenchie's Bar", the one with the large signs for Jax beer and Regal whiskey, is in the public domain and is available from the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs division. It was taken in June, 1940 by Marion Post Walcott. It's likely the rest of the pix in this collection are from the same source if not the same photographer.

I've seen these pictures before. They're all from the war years and the 18 months preceding, 1940-1944.

Number 36 is from Brockton, Ma. We have a local newspaper here called the Enterprise. I believe that's a photo of downtown brockton from the 1960's.
