Many of the online searches that find their way to my blog is for “1930’s-1950’s Fashion ideas”. So I thought for this week’s Vintage Photo Tuesday, I would find some well dressed “regular folks” images from the 1940’s and share them with all of you. Then future VPT’s will focus on the other timelines.
Let’s check out the 40’s Street Style!

I admire a man who can wear swim trunks with seashells and seahorses on them and look good while doing it. These are pretty awesome and totally deserve to be on this list.
Fantastic hat for the win!
The man in this image may have a hurt hand but I can’t stop looking at the cool “woods style” that these 3 finely dressed folks have.
1940’s winter style.
Thelma Porter, Miss Subways New York City, 1948. Thelma was the first woman to integrate a beauty contest in America and became the first African American Miss Subways in April, 1948.
A handsome sailor with his beautiful mother.
Another outstanding hat partnered with a well dressed man at the world famous Leon & Eddie’s in NYC.
We now have come to the end of this weeks post, but due to the fact that I found so many images for this weeks post, I will most likely do a part 2 in the future (exciting!).
