17 Nostalgic Black and White Photographs Show How Starlets Celebrating the New Year From the 1930s and '40s

When New Year’s Eve rolls around, it’s just as important to be with someone dear when the clock strikes midnight as it is to be in the proper place. These 17 black and white pictures from yesteryear show society’s elite surrounded by loved ones and plenty of champagne.

A large clock in the sand at Venice Beach, made with letters and people. A rope in a circle makes the outer edge of the clock, while ladies in swim suits lay around the outside of rope. Four of them hold up the date 1935, while 2 ladies make themselves the minute and hour hands of the clock.
