In many ways, the years 1960-1964 were a extension of the 1950s. Most photos and videos (and movies) of Manhattan show men and women in traditional suits and dresses, in the styles of the Fifties.
But Greenwich Village has always been an enclave within Manhattan where non-conformity reigned. While the people in this photo appear to us to be “dressed up” compared with people on the street today, the style is a lot more relaxed. It’s just a wonderful little time capsule, just before the culture and styles changed so radically in the late 1960s.
It’s still Winter in Boston, but it felt like Spring outside today, the last day of February. And that felt wonderful after a particularly difficult Winter here.
My thoughts turned briefly toward clothes I may need to replace or upgrade for Spring and Summer.
I’ll keep you posted.
It's getting to be shorts weather again.
What do you think - yes or no for cargo shorts?
