Audrey Goes & Rainbow 'Fros

With so much time at home, we at Photomyne want to help you make the most out of the days to come with a refreshing taste of the good times behind us.

Blast from the past

The five-and-dime store

At the turn of the 20th century, stores like F.W. Woolworth's set the standard for retail. Woolworth's locations even became local landmarks - the Woolworth building in New York was the largest in Manhattan prior to the Empire State Building, and a sit-in at the Greensboro, NC lunch counter kicked off months of sit-ins and boycotts in 1960.

B&W colorization of the day

The streets of Rome have never looked as romantic as Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck ride around on a Vespa. The Academy agreed and gave Hepburn an Oscar for her performance.
