On Shorpy:
Today’s Top 5

Never mind the headphones

I want that WATCH.

Missing Tag?

He's the Handsomest Rake I've seen on Shorpy in a while.

Now that is

One hot looking dude!

Went on to model for Robert Crumb

Reminds me of the cover of Zap Comix No. 0.

He'd fit right in

strolling down the sidewalk of any big city today, headphones and all!

That shawl collar henley

is absolutely trend right!

GQ advert?

If I didn't know any better I swear this could pass for a Hugo Boss or Armani ad in a men's magazine.

Multi Tasking

I wonder if the system also transmitted Electro-Shock treatments.
