People... people who need people... are the luckiest people, blah blah blah. (Sorry, Babs!). It's time for some more vintage people.
Here's a bunch of kids (high school age?) circa 1959 hanging out in somebody's living room. Were they watching TV ("Walt Disney Presents"?) or home movies? Listening to "Dream Lover" by Bobby Darin? Actually, this slide is date-stamped "January 1959", so this might be a crazy, out of control New Year's Eve party. Settle down, you hooligans!
Plaids were in for girl's pants. Two wisenheimers to the left make the classic bunny ears behind those ernest young people, while the girl in red (extreme left) is getting her own set of bunny ears. Hoisted on her own petard! Or something.
Now there's a family that really loves beer. And Iggy Pop, to the right, really REALLY loves it. By my count there are approximately 50 cans (not counting the paint can). Pabst Blue Ribbon and Lucky Lager were the favorites of the day. It's interesting to observe the lads and their strong resemblance to the Old Man. Notice that the one lady on the steps is holding her beer can upside down, indicating that this is from that dark era when a church key was required.
