How times have changed in New York City! Extraordinary colour photographs reveal 1940s life in the Big Apple in all its glory

- Photos by Indiana snapper Charles Weever Cushman in 1941 and 1942
- Expensive colour Kodachrome was used to take impressive collection
- Many buildings have since been demolished but some of them still stand

By Mark Duell

Its been 70 years since an Indiana photographer visited New York City and returned home with an amazing collection of holiday snaps.

But Charles Weever Cushmans pictures are even more impressive today, as they were taken on pricey colour Kodachrome and look far more recent than they actually are.

He went around the city taking photos of architecture such as the Brooklyn Bridge and other parts of the Manhattan skyline - and its hard to believe they were taken while World War Two was going on.



Daily life: This street seen from October 3, 1942, is just one from a huge collection by Charles W. Cushman
