The quarantine. One day it will end. The only question is when and how many lives will be lost until we get there. “Paradise Beach“; U. S. Virgin Islands (1960).
“What the world needs now is love, sweet love….” Thank you Jackie DeShannon. Now more than ever in my opinion. “Young Lovers“; Balboa Beach and Newport Beach, California (July 4, 1922).
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.
