The human brain is such a fascinating thing. I look at this photograph and have such a sense of nostalgia. Distant memories try to come to the surface and I can’t resist the smile that crosses my face. The odd thing is there is no way that this should trigger any memory. It would be another 20 years before I entered the world at the time it was taken. It shows how powerful and how present images from the fifties are in American culture.
I may not have lived it first hand, but is definitely a part of me.
