28 Stunning Color Photos Capture Everyday Life in Europe during the 1960s by Charles W. Cushman

A Hoosier native and longtime Chicago resident, Charles Weever Cushman (1896–1972) worked at various jobs: editor, statistician, bureaucrat, but his consuming preoccupation was photography. He took his first picture using Kodachrome slide film on September 3, 1938, then was known with his color photography documenting everyday life around the world, especially in Europe and America.
