Man, Am I Ever Glad It's 2011

The headline on Yahoo News says "Stunning Photos of 1940's America, and labels this one, "1941 Backstage".

So, these are the Groupies circa 1941.


Am I ever glad it's 2011.

Its interesting how things have changed. That was less than a century ago. A lot of people have grandparents who teenagers if not young adults when that first picture was taken.

Speaking of the past, and how good we have it now, check out these rare color photos of the great depression.

Those photos are great. And yes, we do have it very good now, don't we?

Thanks, and yeah we definitively have it better now, in more ways than one.

Can you explain why they are all posing that way in the second picture?

I'm not sure I understand, and I don't want to blow any explanation

Pastorius said...

I don't know, but they sure do look more than willing.
