research resources for ‘transforming a location’

To pinpoint exactly what kind of film set I would like to create, I collated research and inspiration for the 1940s era that I would like to focus on. The culture, architecture, music and social historical context of the 1940s have been things I am intrigued by since discovering my love for Jazz and Swing music of the era, as well as watching the Captain America films and reading the comics set in this era.
