      More at Shorpy.com; probably the most amazing website of high resolution vintage images I've ever found.

      How about some 1942 Middle America action? MUCH larger image on their website.

      Several of these will be showing up on my large format printer like right now. I need some smaller sized images for a mostly drab office.....

      That's a very good idea.

      Thanks for posting those. Very interesting to see every day life of 40+ years ago.
