Open a box of memories and meet lots of pictures and notes labeled New York, años 20.

You know that right now I'm heavily involved rediscovering the years 20 and thanks to Prohibition Cutty Sark y #CuttyNYC… so looking in the trunk of memories I told myself ¿Some ancestor of mine would be at that time?

I opened the box of memories that we all keep under the bed and I discovered one serie of photographs written on the back as a postcard with images as crazy as these… (Any resemblance to reality is pure coincidence)
