Midcentury Memories

The Anonymous Project

Few things are as intriguing as finding a photo with no caption. Filmmaker Lee Shulman bought a box of old slides and became fascinated into these glimpses of the past. His collection soon grew to include thousands of these images.  There’s a short introduction to the book and collection. But beyond this, it is pages of fascinating, familiar, nostalgic, funny and mysterious glimpses into mid-century, middle-class white life. You can also view many of the images at https://www.anonymous-project.com.
