A Vanishing America

Great photo set of LA from the 1950s from LAist.


Marked for future reference.

However, just one word set off a ripple of alarms, cowbells, and racing firetruck engines...in my head. 


She used it in this sentence, "The Chicago Business took 14,500 images between 1938 and 1969, capturing a vanishing America.  [emphasis mine]

I don't know if that was intentional and/or added by an editor, but I instantly get a sense of someone who is in love with an idyllic image of 1950s America, back when America Was Already Sooo Great, if you catch my drift.
