Turning the Corner

1940s Corner - All together

A Good 70 Years Ago - (BTT) There is just something about the period between the World Wars that evokes a certain level of nostalgia, despite the fact that most who feel this way were born far too late to experience the era themselves. The fashion, the cars, the fact milk was delivered right to your door - things simultaneously foreign yet strangely familiar. At the top of the list, at least in this authors opinion, was the glorious Art Deco architecture, and this scene is blessed with 3 postcard-worthy examples of the style. On the far left is a tailor (does anyone even go to those anymore?), at the corner is a bar, and on the right is a bakery. Each have interiors as well thought-out as the exteriors, proving once and for all that they really don't make 'em like they used to.
