    Gosh you have some beauties in your collection! Love old photos of people with bottles of booze in hand but would scowlingly disapprove if I saw a similar shot in a newspaper of today. My hypocrisy aside, I also love these wonderfully creative backdrops and scenery of studio photography of the past. This a a gem!

    I do love to collect gents with bottles and drinks in hand. I just find those pictures hilarious because not much has changed since then. I’m the one calling the hubby late at night to get back home when he’s hanging out with his friends LOL! Some things never change ;)
