the early century images are classic (even if completely boring to me) but about a third way through the images start showing more than the people in the image... but the time period, the emotions during that time, and the fear that is always surrounding us. includes many photos that are haunting and will last with you for a long time.

This book was a mixed bag for me. Some of these photos are icons of photography...others although good photos....are of just typical run of the mill events in NYC . This book gets 3.5 stars from me.
