It's not just classic movies, animation and music that represents what we at Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog was good about the 20th century, but also history and vintage photography. We assume the incredible shot of blogmeister favorite New York City seen above was snapped in 1949, as The Barkleys Of Broadway was released in the fall of that year.
Here's another cool photo, adeptly capturing the lights fantastic at the RKO Palace! Now I want to see Sailors Beware starring Martin & Lewis AND the live comedy revue hosted by Helzapoppin' stars Ole Olsen & Chic Johnson! Standup comic Jackie Miles opens!
At the Brooklyn Fox Theatre, a rockin' Alan Freed show, headlined by master guitar slinger Bo Diddley.
We do know who took these great shots at the 52nd Street jazz club The Three Deuces: these offer just a taste of the work by the brilliant photographer William Gottlieb.
Last but not least, this wonderful photo taken outside the Apollo Theater. Guess this would be winter 1968-1969. No doubt a fabulous time was had by all who attended this concert.
If any photography buffs have read this post, by all means contact us here with more info on those incredible photos; we at Way Too Damn Lazy To Write A Blog love 'em.
