From Daily Mail:

‘A stunning collection of photographs has captured the streets, the people and the scattered trash of Philadelphia in the 1970s. Award-winning photographer Dick Swanson found himself in the City of Brotherly Love in the summer of 1973, documenting the state of Philadelphia for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Documerica project. His breath-takingly nostalgic pictures, dug up this week from the US National Archives by Business Insider, expose the poverty but also the poignant beauty behind the graffitied buildings, the ruins, and the litter-filled streets.’
