We Were Young and We Were Improving
Can you guess what year these magazine pages are from? I'll give you a hint - Farrah Fawcett was still married to Lee Majors. And obviously, people were allowed to torment their children with day-glo walls and shag carpeting. Cigarette ads were common in magazines and newspapers back then. Remember when hanging lots of plants in yarn plant hangers was considered the height of good taste? I actually knew people who decorated that way, but that was back when I thought my orange bean-bag chair was really cool. Come to think of it, that chair would still be cool today. Man, why did I ever get rid of that? (The year was 1976, and "The Boss"* ruled the airwaves in Philly)
*Bruce Springsteen, duh.
