    Yes, this 40s shot does remind you how much the world has changed. Too bad for fashion – today's look is usually unflattering and does nothing to make a person look refined or proud. What happened to caring about how you look?

    I have spent a lot of time going thru Union Station..
    on my way to a photo shoot...
    (usually someone Famous)
    so I love the place and it holds many happy memories for me.
    Seeing this photo really puts into perspective how it was...before
    I ever got there.

    I love the way the pink of her purse and red of her lipstick are contrasted with the otherwise muted colors in the picture. So striking!
