Suits and Ties?

New York City Subway, the Uptown IRT, 1968

New York City Subway, the Uptown IRT, 1968

Another black and white subway shot, but look carefully – suits, ties, haircuts, giant newspapers you had to fold to read, no iPhones, and those terrible old hand grabs that split your skull if you accidentally stood up directly under them. Nearly fifty years ago, in the days when the 1–2–3 trains were known as the Broadway IRT – people just don’t look like that anymore. Scanned from an old Nikon negative taken sometime in 1968.
