The Kriegsmann Files

Some pretty amazing vintage publicity photographs found in an alleyway in Venice, California.  The photographer is James Kriegsmann, one of the most famous publicity photographers of the 20th century.  A lot of the pictures in this Flickr set are compelling not just because the subjects look so… well… unusual but because they are so earnest, optimistic, and, ultimately, so sad.
