Times Square at Night, circa 1948

This recently rediscovered photograph of Times Square was developed after uploader Hamburger212 found a negative tucked away at a flea market.

Once developed, we see a rare color photograph of the square around 1948, with two soliders in uniform in the foreground and the relatively tame advertisements in the background.

Check out the comment thread for more info and adjusted versions of this great find.
