Awesome 70's and 80's portraits from Olin Mills (Read 2694 times)


I've got a fever...

    In the vein of the infamous 1977 JC Penney Catalog, I bring you some outstanding portraits from the fine folks at Olin Mills, Sears, and other fine portrait studios. Click.

    On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

      Disturbing. Amusing. It's amazing people procreated during that decade. And WTF is up with your name? Now you're "Go Glue." Sure, it's an improvement, but it confuses me.

          I didn't know you were allowed to change your name...eric??? 1000 lashes or something. What if zoom zoom changed her name to mooz- mooz or something... Oh BTW I'm from the 70's my mom shopped at Penny's. I'm fairly certain me and my 2 sisters had us some fancy outfits. Too bad no one took pictures back then.

              Wow, that's fabulous. So had to pick a favorite... but that one with the animal carcass in the background is pretty high up there.
                "The Purvis Family" caption is priceless, and "The Damned" is hilarious, too. Hard to pick a winner - they're all keepers. Big grin

                  So rich. I sent my mom the Kitlers link and she responded with the Olan Mills link. I wonder what will be the current generation's leisure suit? Clown car comment was about the best, I thought.
