Through a series of photo essays, this work evokes the mood of an era that embraced the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, and the complacent prosperity of the 1950s. The photos document physical changes in the metropolitan area: the developing skyline, the streets of rowhouses, the expanding suburbs.
