I love collections of old photos like this, you get all kinds of interesting glimpses into people's lives. Also, kind of strange things like this.

Her eyes are beautiful. (She is beautiful as well, but it was her eyes who caught mine - she must have really liked the person holding the camera.)

Great, great, great and double great. Bookmarked, favorited, adored. Thanks JPowers.

Awesome! I love that it covers such a vast swath of time.

And was it just me, or did the camera operator in the dance party film clip seem highly preoccupied with the ass of the woman in the purple dress? (Don't get me wrong -- I think it was a wise aesthetic choice, and I salute the anonymous filmmaker.)
