15 vintage color views of Milwaukee
Thanks to digging by a couple Milwaukee history lovers and the Milwaukee County Historical Society, the work of photographer Ray Szopieray survives, helping to open a window on a Milwaukee that in some cases endures, but in others has vanished.
Here is another set of great images uncovered by Adam Levin, who runs the Old Milwaukee group on Facebook.
Enjoy this walk down memory lane.
