60 years from now people will look at pictures of our contemporaries at the Rainbo in the second picture and think what you are thinking about the first picture, from Rainbo from the 1940s. More Ukrainian Village/East Village history and bars and pictures, and more. Light posting today; consider this a tribute to if charlie parker was a gunslinger, there'd be a whole lot of dead copycats.
