10 classic summer photos June 26 2009
With July 4 around the corner, temperatures soaring into the 90s and vacations well under way it's a good time to share this collection of 10 classic summer photos from the Shorpy archives. It was hard work, but I browsed through close to 100 images to pick the best pieces of vintage Americana. Just click on a photo to be transported to a full-size version of the image on Shorpy.
