45 Vivid Color Photographs Capture Everyday Life in Manhattan in the 1940s

Photographer Charles W. Cushman traveled extensively in the U.S and abroad from 1938 to 1969, capturing beautiful portraits of everyday life. His works have been donated to and maintained by Cushman’s alma mater Indiana University.
