Я часто хожу на сайт www.shorpy.com вдохновляться цветом Кодахрома. Сайт широко известен своими архивными фотографиями, так что вряд ли он будет для вас открытием. Но мне вот захотелось сделать себе подборку избранного, чтобы под рукой была на одной странице и в хорошем качестве. Может быть вам тоже будет интересно. Все снимки сделаны в 1940-1943 гг. Подписи переводить не стал, потому что плохо умею и боюсь переврать. Но в целом всё итак понятно. Смотрим, впитываем.
