Saul Leiter's color images of New York City in the mid century provided a historic glimpse of the metropolis which had mostly been photographed in black and white in previous decades. The above photo shows Harlem in 1960s with a dapper gentleman, an unidentified restaurant or jazz venue along with a truck dropping off a shipment of gin. Could this be 125th Street? There's not much information on the photo but the brief elements of the image still provide a colorful glimpse of a time gone by.
