The Retro Thread

This thread is for sharing objects or pictures of interest from the past, they can be funny, elegant, dusty, rusty, nostalgic... Here are my first picks:

Sci-fi magazine from late 1930's and early 1940's speculating about life on other planets of our solar system:





"Home Theater" from late 1950's:



And the moon landing code once again since I loved this picture and dont want it to vanish in the Random Thoughts thread:



As a bonus, I'll even throw in a Jimi Hendrix & Mick Jagger photo:

Venus life on that picture does look friendly. Updating that would transform the idea into Dante's Inferno.

Oh yes, the ugliness of the 80's always speaks for itself. Take my word when I say, you are lucky not to have been there.

I don't get it artu, it was not considered ugly back then. You make it sound like you were ahead of the current even then and knew it would be laughed at later, which I find rather implausible.

Well you are just picking hot pictures from every era except from the 80's. It was honestly not all hell as you seem to indicate.



Edit: So back then did you honestly think that the girls looked ugly?

Nope, I didnt pick an ugly woman, I picked significantly characteristic ones of the era, so, if you're gonna go Madonna, it would be this:

Once again, thta is not a characteristically 80's style hair. It could have been taken in any decade.

And Minion, Janis Joplin died in 1970, so that is the 60's but again not a...  You get it.

Of course not everybody had the same hair, we are talking about the style that marked the era though.

Madonna is THE icon of 80's and it was Minion who picked her first, but with a less significant picture. You are a man of taste, Sal. Dont ruin it by defending the 80's. I was there, too.

A beauty will still remain a beauty, no matter the era. A beautiful woman will never accept a ridiculous hair cut, thats only ugly women who have to try all baba yaga outfits because nothing fits.

But artu it seems like you only remember the 80's that is the joke of the youngsters who were born in the 2000's...

Of course it had it's awful style but it did not dominate it. Saying that not living that era is a blessing is just wrong. I had great times, just watch Stranger Things for a good nostalgic trip. And oddly enough no one has the insane hair you promote...

You're doing it again, yes, we'll never say "yikes" to Cindy Crawford but does she look better in that specific 80's style, no:

Yeah, I guess this one also crushed Sal's "a beautiful woman will never accept a ridiculous hair cut" theory.
