A collection of snapshots

Liam sent me this link earlier this evening.

My Father's Kodachrome and B&W Contributions

This Wikipedia user has scanned and uploaded some of his father's old photographs, from America and Europe, seemingly from the 1960s. What strikes me is the difference that still existed between places, a far cry from the homogenous urban and suburban landscapes of today.

What attracted me most was the comparison I could draw between London and Chicago at the time.

    Are you sure these two photos are contemporary of each other? To my knowledge, Marina City was constructed by 1964. Unless there was a vintage car rally in progress, that does not to me look like 1960s London. It nearly looks pre-war. I could be mistaken.
