Cellar 58

A nice little wine bar on Second Avenue – there are few others for the Valentine’s Day. Afterward we went to Bowery Electronic

New York in 1940s

Amateur photographer Charles W. Cushman traveled extensively in the U.S. and  abroad capturing daily life from 1938 to 1969.

His works have been donated to and maintained by Cushman’s alma mater Indiana University, which has kindly given us permission to  publish his gallery of New York City photos taken in 1941 and 1942.

They give a great impression of what Chinatown,  the Financial District, and Midtown looked like 70 years ago.
