Color Photographs of Miami, 1939

Charles W. Cushman isn’t among the most well-known of 20th century photographers.  But, he had a passion for capturing average people and still life.  Between 1938 and 1969, the Chicago-born Cushman took 14,500 images, almost exclusively using Kodachrome color slide film.  Now, many of his photographs appear in a book published earlier this year by Eric Sandweiss, The Day in Its Color: Charles Cushman’s Photographic Journey Through a Vanishing America.  These are pictures Cushman took in Miami in 1939.
