Merry Christmas Everyone

Hope you all got what you wanted - whether it was two Huckleberry Hound ceramic figurines, a suspicious half-bottle of moonshine (empty by noon I guess) or a complete lack of fashion sense (Red and Green??)

Now... Back to the Sprouts.

The Happy Honeymooners

A frustrating lack of info on this slide - where have I heard that before.

I'm guessing that this is in Yosemite National Park, and from the 1950's , tho' that might be John Hamm on the right.

Bonus - Nope. No idea of the story of this.

From a box of slides documenting the history of Wetton in Derbyshire/Staffordshire, this was marked as "Mrs Harrison".

The Penthouse Swimming Pool.

Today's slide is from 1959, and seems to feature three friends at a rooftop swimming pool.

No doubt, seconds later, they would strip off and indulge in some sorority skinny-dipping.

Well, no doubt in my mind.

Bonus - A soap bubble freezing.
