As we shift closer towards 'onshoreing' and a growing consumer demand for American manufacturing (yaaaahooo Push Potaito!), we can't help but reminisce the stereotypes associated with 'Made in USA.' More often than not, a strong, hard working factory worker in Detroit comes to mind. Maybe a golden lab and a Coca Cola. In essence, Americana is still a modern theme - found everywhere from LA to Paris, Texas. And though these photos may be from different eras, perspectives, they all share a sort of independence, no?
Take a look at some dreamy images from American photographers, classic and modern.
