New York, New York: Nostalgic wartime images romanticize the Big Apple in black and white

Why don't people love like this anymore?

This is one of the most famous photographs from the Second World War. The soldier and the nurse are unknown but people have come forward to claim the fame. Apparently the nurse slapped the soldier immediately after. The event was the celebration of the end of the war and it was taken in Times Square by Alfred Eisenstaedt.... New York 1945

Sometimes, one simple picture can tell you more about history than any story you might read or any document you might analyze.

Is This Iconic Photo Actually A Depiction Of Sexual Assault?

1945- end of world war II. A sailor was so happy that he grabbed an unknown nurse in the street and gave her what is quite possibly the most famous kiss of all time. I want an epic kiss like this one day! <3
