A trip to the last century!

1945: V-J Day in Times Square

On Aug. 14, 1945, Japan surrendered to the Allied forces, marking the end of World War II. As news of the surrender spread, Americans poured into the streets to celebrate. Photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt snapped the iconic image of a sailor kissing a woman in Times Square, which first ran in Life magazine and instantly became of the world’s most recognizable photos. In this photo, we see the same kiss from a different angle, as photographed by U.S. Navy Lieut. Victor Jorgensen.
