I have to admit that I do quite like Retro Style. Furniture, fashions and food from the fifties and sixties.
And there are quite a few likeable items in this shot. The upright lights, for example, cool and almost trendy.
Painted brick wall ... not so much.

I was going to post something relevant to today's shock Brexit news...but I won't.
Instead, a combination of two of America's favourite things.
Cars and Parades.
And the sign seems to say "Branagan Vintage Car Club - Sponsored by Keith's Chevron." Except, that turns up nothing on Google. Branagan doesn't even seem to be a place name.

From playing with the brightness, contrast and gamma, I think this shows a lad petting a stealthy chicken, while another sneaks up behind him, ready to steal his wallet.

After yesterday formal and, frankly, upper class diners, let's celebrate these hard-working, plain-speaking sons of the soil.
Honestly, I could imagine that they were the original choice for models for American Gothic, but couldn't spare the time during harvest season.

Actually, it could be a New Year's Eve Party, based upon the January 1965 date on the slide. I'm not sure whether Helga (on right, in black dress) is drunk, sleeping or dead, but she looks ready to keel over.
