Our new section “Back in the Day” includes personal photos of our readers from the ’40s through the ’70s.
These wonderful photos were contributed by our good friend David from Atomic Fantasy Vintage. Aren’t they wonderful?
1953: My mom, age 7, on a little mid-century sofa with an very large left-hand arm rest. Was this to set a tray on?
1966: My dad, age 21, on a white vinyl sofa. Holding a model boat and wearing what looks like some kind of sailor’s hat.
