Another Day In Gotham

.
Gypsy Caravan 2012-05-28 40

I bet the people in the next car never even noticed. So where are they supposed to be, in a tunnel (it's never too long until the next stop) or a station? Did they mug the conductor so they could lock the doors shut? What's with the Robin Hood meets dirty old man outfits? This poster I saw at the Gypsy Caravan must have been for an old movie. You can tell - no latter day New Yorker in his/her right mind would ask for a sum as trivial as one million dollars. Donald Trump would fire them.

That's it for the Gypsy Caravan unless I run out of new material down the line. There is a set with all I've edited, many of which were not on the blog, at http://www.flickr.com/photos/bobcrowe/sets/72157629975865922/ . Tomorrow we start looking at a lot of people who like to pretend they're in central France 500 years ago, and their pals who like to drink with them.

en effet , cela fait penser aux films des années 1970 (comme le justicier dans la ville)

It feels very 1970s.

Great print. Americana in the tradition of Norman Rockwell but with a little twist. Funny find.

I think it's the Taking of Pelham 123, which was an early seventies film starring Robert Shaw.
