Litter in streets

I do recall how littered city streets and highways were (at least in the East) in the 1950's and 1960's. There was a big "litterbug" campaign then and it seems to have worked to some extent. At least it seems to me that streets and especially highways are more free of litter now.

Fifties Women

That woman to the far left just going through her day is damn glamorous too.

Her shoes never went out of style either.

The Dior New Look

in full swing!

Spiffy bib

If that fellow with the rubber neck holds onto his tie for another 20 years, it will be back in fashion again. Of course, he'll have to buy some bell bottoms to go with it.

Shelley Berman

Exercises his neck.
