    The second half of the 20th century, as all other time periods, has its own very specific atmosphere and taste. Starting in the post-war years, ended with the explosion of the digital era in 2000, this was the time when most of us grew up and founded their ways in the world.

    What about creating some visual yet informative database where to preserve the memory of these decades? What was the life? What happened?

    The photos can be yours or by some dedicated photographer but please follow some rules:

    1. It must serve as illustrative and informative document for the given pre-2000 period, depicting specific places, streets, structures, events, people, objects, lifestyle…etc.
    No matter daily life or historic events, ordinary people or public personalities…

    2. Please, don’t be lazy and always write explanation clarifying – What, Where, When!
    (what we see, where is this, when is this photo taken, if the exact year is unknown use something like early 70’s or mid 60’s, etc.)

    Hope, you’ll enjoy this initiative!

    I start with:

    Sir Yank’s Records, Gathorne Street, Leeds, England.
    Year 1976
    Photograph by Peter Mitchell

    This weird structure is still there, repainted and of course no longer a record shop.

    I believe, some can possibly recognize their old girlfriends and other their mothers :)
