Magpie Tales #174 "The Good Old Daze"

Stanley Kubrick for Look Magazine, 1949 

World War II is over
So- light up baby
The fun has only begun
Soon we'll light up our bras
And burn flags in the streets.

You take us through history with this one. Great read and a nice ode to black & white.

Yes, the crazy old days pitting against others just to be heard. It was fun with all the innocence thrown in! Nicely Kathe!

I suspect that's about how it went down.

A nice little step back in time. Sadly, these days, a burning bra of mine would go on for weeks!
