Time Capsule: An Old-Fashioned 4th of July, 1954

An Old-Fashioned 4th of July, 1954

I don’t think I need to offer much commentary on this gallery. It was taken by Life magazine photographer N.R. Farbman on the 4th of July, 1954, in an unknown town in America. All the classic Independence Day scenes are here — a family picnic, a parade complete with fire trucks, kids buying fireworks and holding sparklers, and smiles all around.
