We don't know when this old photo was taken, but this is still the state of our country today. Let's lend a hand to our fellow man, support small, independent businesses, and in general just uplift each other more than knock each other down. It's hard times, keep your head up.
We can't recall how or where we stumbled upon this photo, if anyone knows the photographer, please send us an email so we can give proper photo credit

The RMS Titanic sank on April 15, 1912. Five days later, the liner's chief barber Charles Weikman gave his personal account of the sinking of the Titanic. So I searched for a photo of the Titanic's two barbershops - one for 2nd class passengers and one for 1st class (where Mr. Weikman worked).Unfortunately, I couldn't locate it, but I found this photo of the barbershop in the RMS Olympic (also known as "Old Reliable"), which is supposed to be near identical to the one that would have been in the Titanic. The RMS Olympic was one of the Olympic-class ocean liners built for the White Star Line, which also included the Titanic and Britannic. If anyone is able to locate a picture of the Titanic's actual barbershop, send me an email.

Eugene de Salignac worked for the Department of Bridges from 1903 to 1934. During this time he recorded the building of some of New York's most famous bridges and captured some iconic images like this one of the painters climbing the bridge with no safety equipment. More pictures and info from The New Yorker.
We shot the present day pictures during our numerous city journeys later to find a similar "before and after" effect. East Side lifelines to the city captured a decade apart.
