I am a lover of 50s Kitsch, Old Hollywood Glamour, Vintage Sleaze, Vintage Cheesecake, Pin ups, Atomic Era style, fashion and design. About half of the images I post BELONG TO ME via the plethora of vintage magazines I own and a rickety old scanner on it's last legs, the other half DO NOT BELONG TO ME and are images I have found all over the net. I will make EVERY EFFORT to attribute an image that I post to it's proper owner. 95 percent of what I post are images from the 1950s and 60s, 4 percent are from earlier on and the remaining 1 percent can be anything that happens to float my boat at the moment. I Do post semi nude and nude images and what I consider to be "soft" fetish stuff mostly by Irving Klaw. I have had one or two requests asking me not to post those images. I have decided that I will continue to do so. I might add that I will NEVER post an image that I find to be HARD CORE, DISGUSTING, SHOCKING OR FRIGHTENING, there are more than enough of those images around already. Please enjoy your stay! Oh and, by the way...the search button on this blog actually WORKS!
