Four Beautiful Kodachrome Photos of New York City Storefronts

In browsing through the Kodachrome prints on one of my favorite auction sites recently, I came upon these four gorgeous shots taken in New York City between 1949 and 1952. They feature four different storefronts and some of the sweetest Art Deco signage you will see this week. Click on any photo for the full-size version, and enjoy!

Golds

Just look at those signs. Something about Art Deco makes even an otherwise drab storefront look slightly glamorous, doesn’t it? The Golds and pharmacy stores must have looked fantastic on a dark New York City evening.
