Quirky Vintage Images


Hope you're enjoying your long holiday weekend!

I was just perusing one of my favorite sites, Retronaut, an English based website with vintage photos, many leaving you think,  "what the heck?"

Gay Pride 1974

Retronaut is a blog created by Chris Wild, a former museum curator who has used photos from museums and other collections as well as material contributed by visitors."Rather than nostalgia or folly, the aim is enlightenment, wonder and the pleasure of weirdness," The Guardian newspaper of London remarked about the website in 2010.

The site is filled with interesting photos, and not just of celebrities.

1899- Los Angeles' first telephone pay station

Alfred Hitchcock wearing a Beatle wig - 1964

black cat stockings

The office of price control fighting - 1945


 Albert Einstein on the beach - 1939


Check out Retronaut here. You may lose a couple of hours of your day there!
