I like retro photos, websites and paraphernalia of all sorts.  The definition of “retro”, as set forth in the Miriam-Webster online dictionary is:  relating to, reviving, or being the styles and especially the fashions of the past:  fashionably nostalgic or old-fashioned.
I like retro photos of women.

I wonder if The Lovely Sharon would be interested in running for Frankfurter Queen

Donna Reed

Harley Gals

I like Retro Photos of Men

Ted and Robert Kennedy


I like Retro Photos of Groups and Activities

I Like Retro Ads

I am not certain I have the courage to tell The Lovely Sharon that wives are for cooking.  So many of Retro ads would not be acceptable today.  I wonder if these women were in Mitt Romney's Binders?

I wonder if I ought to get The Lovely Sharon a vacuum for Christmas

There are dozens of retro websites.  Check them out if that sort of stuffs interests you.
