    Until the end of 50, and in many places up to the 60s, hard workers from industrial quarters and miners in them and in England saw hot water once a week at best ... where can complacency come from ...
    Photos are cool! Living people, simple open faces, not like now. Some show off.

    Yes, the pictures are excellent, and most importantly what is the difference between modernity, well, heaven and earth are straight. The working class and farmers are shown, and now find this in the USA.

    Why komenty in Russian then ???, it was necessary as well as komenty under the photo in English and write everything. Now to the photo: - Yes, the photographs of the villagers strongly resemble ours, the same fatigue in the eyes, and the children, like ours, after the war, have not yet become fat on the burgers, and not yet lazy with love by human rights activists, dressed in plain satin. In general, labor, even then, America.

    I caught myself thinking that among them could be my grandfather and he would not differ from them. The same simple face working hands are not a rich but friendly family and five six children. Can it be that people themselves have changed in just half a century? Swagger, greed, unjustifiable sense of superiority, etc. And this can be said not only about the Americans but also about us.
    Threat. These people do not dare to call the language ami it is the Americans.

    Good photos, just need to translate the captions under the pics, not everyone knows English, and it’s tiresome to put the captions in the translator every time.

    Thanks for the interesting selection. I like to look at old photos. They have a special atmosphere, warmer, it is just like the old American and Soviet films, they have more sincerity, kindness. These are the hard workers who built America.

    In the photographs are hard workers, and above, in power, are parasites and cannibals.

    Good selection. Simple, working people. And most importantly - a lot of children. How quickly everything is lost. It is a pity that we have the same. (Prohibit cinema and television)

    After black and white films and photographs of those times - it's like photographs of another planet. Their black and white counterparts wind the bogeyman.

    Color photographs of the USSR, with the exception of photographs from the occupied territories, are hard to find. Unless the photographs were authored by Prokudin-Gorsky - only this is not the USSR and they are one hundred years old ...

    The quality is excellent. And across the ocean, meanwhile, everything was not so peaceful.
    Jeans and denim overalls have not yet become fashionable - just work and casual clothes wink

    Both the people in the photographs and the subjects themselves are interesting. And it can be seen that even ordinary workers lived in greater prosperity "over the hill" than in the USSR.

    I will share my impressions.
    Impression 1. Not a single fat. Unless with a stretch (well-fed).
    Impression 2. Not a single Negro (sorry African American). Even in the background (As if they weren’t).
    Impression 3. There are no signs of "divine chosenness" on the faces. Apparently then they did not know about it yet. Ordinary hard workers like you and me.
    Impression 4. Maybe it seemed to me, but the remnants of collectivism in the community are visible. Now they have been etched.
    Impression 5. They live "well" at that time. There are many cars, even in the village. Apparently this is no longer a luxury.

    Erysipelas are proletarian, but somehow not unusually drunk.
    And the photo is simply incredibly high quality.
    Dimensionless respect compilation.
