I really loved this photo when I found it. So classic New York, love the women's fashion in the 1950's Mad Men era. I guess photo booths were a big deal when they came out, seems pretty inexpensive for 4 poses for .25. I think I actually have photos of myself with my Dad in one of these when I was very little.
This vintage photograph along with many others, were recently discovered antique portraits showcase the city in the midst of the 1950’s, as seen through the Rolleiflex lens of the undiscovered photographer Frank Larson. While digging through his aunt’s attic, where Larson stowed away his images in 1964, the photographer's grandson found this remarkable collection of street scenes that give a candid glimpse into the history of the big city. Larson’s extensive collection of thousands of black and white pieces are in the care of the Queens Museum of Art and are receiving the recognition they deserve. We are quite the lucky ones that these were found, and that we have the chance to enjoy them in 2016!
