look at all of the circles, curves, and lack of hard edges in the picture. You can see it in the cars, the lamp posts, even the street lights and advertisements, there was always a touch of beauty in everything. The building in the background says "buy war bonds" so this was probably between 1942 and 1945. While not in this picture, you know from history that men often wore suits and women wore dresses or at least skirts and blouses. There is a perceived air of professionalism; that people knew what they were doing meanwhile a 30 year old man today is more likely to wear the same jeans and tee shirt combination every day that he did when he was 10. We see someone that we can look up to in those old photos where people were at the same time "grown up" and lovers of the beautiful.

I think people generally pine for their nation's perceived Golden Age.

The British idolise for the late 19th century, as it represents their zenith, as a society.

For America, the Post-War industrialisation period represents an extremely positive change to their national identity. Self sufficiency and family values reigned supreme. Wars were righteous and the Soviets weren't yet capable of threatening American shores.

Your autistic screeching is not really an argument, my mentally handicapped friend. There's absolutely nothing objectively hard about reading Cyrillic cursive. The only quirky thing about it is the geometric similarity of и, л, м, ш and т which makes some words less legible than in block letters, much like it does in Latin with i, m, n, u and w. I'm sorry to disappoint you with this fact, but being able to read it is hardly an achievement or a superpower. Maybe try and do something worthy in your life, so you don't have to obsess over trivialities.
