"Someone Make a Time Machine Already" 1961 Fall Weekend In New York
Esquire Magazine, September, 1961 (click on image to enlarge)
Nicely written & shot without credit to writer or photographer. A contrast to today's fashion spreads of actors and rappers with half naked women, extruded by LA, holding their crotch or flipping the bird while credits go to every strap hanger and coke-pourer in the room.
The old Esquire was a big mamma-jamma. It's hard to describe what reading one was like when I was 10 years old. Not only because I didn't understand a whole helluva lot of it -- It was almost taller than I was. But like reading Shakespeare, you don't always need to understand every word to get the gist of what's happening in the play.
It's good to be a man.
