Thanks so much for posting these!! I love all these old color photos! I posted nearly all the Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco ones over the winter, but I never got around to the rest of the cities.

As great as these photos are, it makes me sad. What on earth did we do to our fabulous cities? :(

I'm looking forward to seeing more. :)

Amazing..I'm trying to figure out where that first picture of Harrisburg was taken. From the bridge in the background it must be South Harrisburg....which is amazing because NONE of those buildings are still there. Interstate 83 now runs through there and it's mostly rowhomes.

I am really enjoying this! I especially liked Cleveland, Indianapolis and the first shot of Dallas. And looking at Denver just 50 years ago, it's amazing to see how far it's come!
