Nostalgic Portraits Almost Lost In History

Life was different in the Groovy Era. In the middle of the 20th century there was a change in the way that people were thinking. Some people went back to nature, some hit the open road, and others expressed themselves through breathtaking artistic ventures. Through these nostalgic photos we can relive the greatest moments of the ‘50s ’60s and ‘70s with stars like Marilyn Monroe, Ozzy Osbourne, and Paul Newman, just to name a few.

You’ll see celebrities like Sofia Loren trying out new hairstyles next to witchy television stars, and bearded drummers working on solo albums. We hope you’re ready to spend the day in our little time machine, remembering what it was like when everything was a little more Groovy. Let’s go! 

Sally Field in the late 1960s.

Sally Field is one of those actresses who’s taken the audience though the best decades. While the nature of her work has changed, and she’s flitted between television and film, she’s always got a confidence and grace that lets her fans know that she’s in charge. Whether she’s a flying nun, or a Southern California goofball, her work is always effortless and fun.

In the ‘60s Field starred in shows like Gidget and The Flying Nun, however she felt that she was being typecast with these kinds of roles. Rather than moan about it, she studied at the Actor’s Studio and chased interesting roles throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s. Because of this, we really, really like her.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
