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!
Teenage girls on Easter vacation playing in game area of Newport Beach Pier, California.
Teen Fads, 1948
“Striped socks are worn by all the members of a girl’s club at the Austin High School in Chicago. They are regulation football stockings which the girls have wheedled away from Austin players. The girls think they are wonderful but the boys dislike them. They say the girls legs look like Barber Poles.”
Bobby Socks and Loafers, 1944
“Bobby Socks and Loafers are on the active feet of nearly every U.S. High School girl. Here is a line up of co-eds at Hollywood High in San Mateo, California.”
“Ringo walked on this grass!!” 1964
Teen sobs, clutching her treasure tightly in her hand: a few matted sprigs of grass that the object of her affection, Ringo Starr, had trod upon only moments before.
