The family is the fundamental unit of all civilizations. I would argue that the photo presented here, “Young Lovers“, is representative of this concept. Taken on Independence Day (July 4, 1922) on Balboa Beach, Newport Beach California it is an image that is easily understood for those who came into adulthood living near the seashore. We have presented it here in the original sepia tone as we believe it enhances the period of the 1920s when many photos were reproduced in sepia. See more images from our People collection.
