Brooklyn Circa 1978

A friend clued us into this amazing collection of photographs taken by Dianda Nooney from 1978 – 1979.

These whimsical photos of typical Brooklynites in their homes and businesses are full of vintage style and inspiration, perhaps for your ongoing project?

Over the period Ms Nooney shot over 200 homes yielding over 2000 images.

Note the wood wall paneling in a few of these shots… Personally, I think it is making a comeback. Thankfully, wall to wall shag is not experiencing the same renaissance…
