Take a trip back to New York’s distant past through these quirky monochromatic vintage photographs by renowned New York Times fashion photographer Bill Cunningham.
A number of old photographs by Cunningham is set to be put up by the New-York Historical Society in an exhibit called _Bill Cunningham: Façades_ from March 14 until June 15, 2014.
