This is an extraordinarily subtle and artful collection that constitutes a sort of portrait of American life in the early postwar period. "The images in this book, taken by professional and commercial photographers, such as Joe Steinmetz and Lucien Brown, highlight the family, rituals, and social events for clients rich enough to hire them. . . . To find their meaning is not easy." Highly recommended!Barbara Norfleet was born in 1926; this book covers the period of her early adulthood (1946-1959).
