Who We Were

I got hooked on the Square America site a couple of years ago when I was trying to figure out what to call my store. In googling the word "Poolside" images appeared that immediately captured a feeling I wanted to convey yet couldn't describe. I quickly contacted Nicholas Osborn and he was kind enough to allow me to use the images in my ads and press. Now his long-awaited book "Who We Were: A Snapshot History of America" is finally available. In our digital world, where imperfections are easily deleted or at least photoshopped to death, you will get lost in his world of vintage snapshots that are sometimes comforting, often disturbing, always fascinating.
