Some felt that our recent "Picture of the Day" showing a Good Bye kiss in World War I was a little stiff . . . that on such an occasion an embrace would have been in order. Well, by World War II, things had loosened up a little bit, and proper good-byes and welcome homes were being given. This picture is the famous picture of a Sailor kissing a Nurse. It was taken on this day (August 14) in the year 1945 at a Times Square celebration of the Victory over Japan in World War II.
