Some great photos from Newsday

Recommended Posts

I could debate whether that statue really is "beautiful."  It seems far more gratuitous than beautiful to me but art is in the taste of the beholder.  Black and white photos have a clarity and a warmth like no other.

Any reason that collection appeared 8 March? No worries. I'm grateful someone periodically remembers the NYWF

Some of those captions were...inaccurate. 

Nice lens on first shot. Compressed distance to make Shea look like within throwing distance.

Too bad, Wayne, it was the hit of the Fair!

They did manage to mangle a few of the captions. There's a shot of the Texaco map dated 1965 that has to be 1964, as my town in missing in the photo and it had been added in for the second year.
