The 1920s and ’30s: Fashion and culture in the USA

A few years ago, I came across a website that offered a fascinating collection of photos of the 1920s as well as a video of a 1930s show by the same name.

They were taken by a photographer named Joseph F. Kollwitz. 

Kollwitz is best known for photographing the 1920 New York City, which was also the home of the first filmstrip, and also for photograpessing the 1940s Brooklyn, which is still the home for the city’s most famous tourist attraction, Brooklyn Bridge. 

The video, entitled “The 1930s in Brooklyn,” is a fascinating, albeit slightly dated, look at the 1940 and 50s Brooklyn.

The city was at the forefront of fashion in the 1920’s. 

This video shows a variety of women in various styles from the 1930s and the 1940’s, all dressed in a way that reflects the times. 

Here’s a closer look at some of the images.

The 1930’s in Brooklyn The 1930s Brooklyn is the place to be if you want to look at a lot of interesting people in the 1940 to 50s.

You’ll be hard pressed to find a woman dressed in any of the most popular styles from that time period, but the 1930’s can be a fun time to visit the city.

It’s a great time to get out of the city, for example, because it’s also a great place to watch the New York Giants in a baseball game. 

One of the things you might see is that New York’s Fashion Week was in March and April, with more than a few shows being held. 

I’ve included a few shots of some of my favorites from the decade, including a 1950s dress from the Macy’s Spring/Summer show, a 1940s gown by the French designer Jean V. Couture, and a 1920s wedding dress from a 1950 show.

 Kellie Cavanaugh’s 1930s dress is from the 1920 Fashion Week in New York. 

A 1940s dress by the fashion designer Jean-Michel Schoenberg is a beautiful example of a 1940’s dress.

(Via the Brooklyn Historical Society)I found this 1940s, 1930s, and 1940s look really fun to see on the internet, especially if you’ve got a camera handy. 

If you want a look at more New York fashion, here are a few vintage shots from my personal collection.
