I think this is the coolest photo representing the 1930s

I came across this photo online. It’s 1935 NYC.

I find it interesting because the guy looks so cool. I don’t normally think of the 1930s as being anything when I think of the 1930s. I don’t know why, I think Art Deco was part of that period, but when I think of the 1920s I get an image, same with the 1940s and future decades, but never the 1930s. If I do get an image of the ’30s, it’s the depression, I never think of anything this cool and calm and be a scene I’d like to be a part of. Who is he? What is he reading?

To me the 1920s, 1950s, and 1980s seem to be very similar from what I’ve read and seen in movies and on tv. They seem like prosperous times, safe times and fun times. I think of the roaring 20s as being the Happy Days 50s and my favorite decade the 1980s.

If I could, I would visit the ’20s and ’50s. And if I could, I would visit the 1980s and relive them starting on January 1, 1980 and up until December 31, 1989 and then do it all over again. I sometimes wonder what that might be like after we die. Can we do that? Can we visit various time periods and live there or witness them every day, if we want to?
