A 1960s Christmas

Better late than never. This is one of my all-time favorites–especially the closed-eyes cat–and another example of how there really is nothing quite like a snapshot.

Picnic

Quirky vintage c. 1960s photo of a woman eating, with Coke bottle and cat-eys glasses

Christmas is a Time of Peace

Priceless

vintage photo of two bulldogs looking out from the windows of their owner's 1960s station wagon.

Average cost of a new car in 1967: $2,750; average price of a gallon of gas: 33 cents; hitting the road for a day out with those guys: priceless.
