4 Weeks in June…week one

For the next 4 days, images from life magazine, for the 4 June issues, 1965…starting with  June 4th…

A sputtering little fake motorcycle from where? France? How completely uncool is that? How many Mobys did they sell? 6?…8?…I never saw one.

Bright Idea #417…you can shave, and presumably read, in the dark. I think they sold 12 of these…

By 1965, the fad of photographing products…and even people…from above had caught on strong…someday I’m going to suss out who started it all…for now, I’ll just say that I remember thinking it looked really cool…and it certainly sets Sixties advertising images apart from the pack.

What can one say? The long-lost art of marching in high heels was the order of the day way back when…very nice, sez me….

shameless plugs from beautiful downtown burbank…
