Americana Photos From A Classic Time
What we know to be Americana is largely influenced by national values, historical identity, patriotism and nostalgia. Our collection or Americana photos takes you on a tour through a time gone by, from $3.00 shoe shines to the original Orange Crush.
Americana is a collective term for artifacts related to the history, geography, folklore and cultural heritage of the United States of America.
One of our favorite examples is the Dairy Freeze restaurant neon sign, a timeless work of art that makes for a truly classic photo.
Usually defined as any collection of materials and things concerning or characteristic of the United States or of the American people, this style has been beautifully captured in photos in small towns across the Unites States. from Node Wyoming to Sante Fe New Mexico.
In its broadest sense, Americana is representative or even stereotypical of American culture as a whole. One of our best examples of this is the Good Humor Ice Cream truck. Everything about the Americana photo is rich with context from these glory days and simple times gone by.
