    I don’t think these are that bad. A little dated some of them, but back then there weren’t all the Halloween shops and amazon. Some of them are quite good.

    Jane Asher was Paul McCartney’s girlfriend in the ’60s. He wrote a lot of songs for her.

    This article had an unhealthy obsession with pantyhose. Never seen so many men outside a drag bar wearing hosier!
