New Year Celebration

This picture was taken a hundred years ago, and shows a New Years Celebration in New York City. I find it interesting to consider what the future held for these revelers . . . World War I, the Roaring 20's, the Great Depression, and then World War II.
I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable New Year's eve. I will be celebrating at home with my family.

  3. I can never see the sense in staying up late to see the New Year come in - it will be there in the morning and my sleep is too important. Have a wonderful and safe holiday everyone. (I'm waiting for Saturday's mystery photo!)

  7. It reminds me of some of the party scenes described in "The Shining."

    On a lighter note, some things never change!
