Fun Photos & Items

[Randomly arranged] New Feature, starting December 2022
There are many notable shots and items throughout The 1960s Project’s articles and pieces.  Still, people send us neat things all the time that don’t have a place on the site right away. We don’t want to lose them, though, so we decided to start a kind of stables here for some of these “out-of-the-blue” 1960s photos – some serious, some amusing; we hope always interesting.
