VINTAGE AMERICAN HISTORY IN PICTURES THAT MAKE ME NOSTALGIC FOR A TIME I WAS NEVER ALIVE

Love you, America.
  1. This list is just pics I had saved on my phone from Pinterest and Tumblr. Looking at it, there's a lot of white, straight faces! So much of American history has erased other people and the beauty they add to the whole. Please add more pics of diverse and wonderful history, and I am going to add more diverse streams of images to my feeds. ❤️❤️
    @ltoiaivao I bet you have some good ones
  2. Soda fountain, 50s.
  3. Esther Williams, star of many movies where she did tricks in the water and looked flawless.
  4. 1920s. Cool broads.
  5. Fashion goals, tbh.
  6. Just ladies talkin. 1890s.
  7. Random cute couple from mid 20th c.
  8. Molly Ringwald. 80s.
  9. Charlie Chaplin and Merna Kennedy backstage on The Circus.
  10. I ~believe~ I found this pic on a page about American internment camps, but I'm not sure. Another time in our history we should face and acknowledge and not forget because it was a bad mistake. Also, cute kids.
  11. Idk what kind of photo shoot this is but I want it.
  12. I love this image of the 40s, because it's so cute but also reveals so many of the problems of the time. (Women in strictly defined roles, women as support for men instead of on their own, women as sexy aids for men doing the real work. All white women.)
  13. Native women on a reservation playing the stick game.
    The reservation part isn't something I'm nostalgic about, but it is a part of American history we should face and deal with.
  14. A ball.
  15. My fave. Girls in the 50s posing in front of a jail in Salem from the 1600s. History in history.
  16. Auditions for the Wicked Witch in The Wizard Of Oz.
  17. Marilyn Monroe in a funhouse. This pic is such a metonymy; I loooove it.
  18. Supermodels. Tyra. Those pants. THAT UNDERBOOB.
  19. Girls on a ride at a state fair.
  20. This one is so lol I love it. Turn of the century motor scooter. RAZRS 4EVER
  21. Auditions for a black cat. 😻
  22. Women in a home ec class. Lollllllllll.
  23. Gay pride demonstration, 70s.
    I'm so glad we've made strides on this.
  24. Concert pic.
  25. Beauty pageant, Harlem.
  26. Photo booth pic of a cute couple.
  27. Right after the sign was built.
