Me Back When

photoeditor-1485532036598

I enlisted in the air force in October 1956. This was taken a month prior. The narrowminded people at bootcamp wouldn’t let me keep me Levi’s and Hunter’s hat.

The car was a 1948 Chrysler New Yorker Club Coupe. A 1956 Mercury would have been much cooler.

The rolling up of the cuffs was still cool back then, but not the Roy Rogers wide cuff. By 1956 it was as narrow as the wearer could manage.
