A gay man of a certain age and a certain sensibility.
I like photos of movie stars and scenes from movies of the 1930s, 40s & 50s, but also photos of more 'ordinary' people and situations from that time.

I used to post vintage physique/beefcake photos from the same period, but I've posted hundreds of them & have little interest in posting any more. If you came here looking for that type of material, the 2010 Archive is where you'll find it.


NOTE: Obviously, I don't have the copyright to any of these photos. They're just what I find on the internet and on the Tumblr dashboard. I'll always credit the photographer or the studio and give the source if I have that information.
