50+ Rarely Seen Photos Of America In The 1950’s Show How Different Everyday Life Looked Before https://ift.tt/2JQiwXZ

abril 16, 2018

When it comes to 1950’s in America, you might think of beautiful vintage dresses, Elvis Presley or Marilyn Monroe. Or you can think of nuclear annihilation, racial segregation, and the looming Cold War. Despite that, this period is often viewed as a golden era in U.S history, even though it was a definitely not as glorious as sometimes it might appear in the movies.

Many of the photos were collected by Denis Fraevich, a New Yorker of Russian descent who loves to bring the era back to life. “The pictures were found at auctions, flea markets and yards, digitized and posted on the Internet,” he told Bored Panda. “Someone’s happy life, someone’s dreams, important events, holidays and travel, for some reason were thrown into the garbage and became penny goods in a neighborhood sale. Seeing this is incredibly sad, but thanks to enthusiasts who buy and digitize old slides, we can raise the curtain of time and look at that era through the eyes of ordinary Americans.”

Denis has an incredible blog where he shares more of American history with his collected photographs. “I am amazed at how often a car is present in the frame,” he said. “They obviously occupied a much more important position in the life of an American than in our time. Today, it is much less likely that someone would take pictures of their car or television.” Scroll down to see these breathtaking photos yourself!
