Ever wonder why people keep referring to the past as the “Good ol’ days”? That’s because in a world on trashy pop-stars, one-hit wonders, and movie stars that can barely act – things used to be better back in the day. Duh! So if you’re longing for a more talented and classy time long since gone, then check out these rarely seen before vintage pics here to bring you right back.
After the Beatles, no one was bigger than the Rolling Stones. Here Mick is wining and dining with his band mates.
Marilyn And The Queen
Back in 1956, Ms. Marilyn Monroe (who was Hollywood royalty) met the most royal lady herself – the Queen. Both got together at a London film premiere, and both were 30 years old at the time.
Both a photographer and pinup model, Bunny’s claim to fame was her unique, and stunningly beautiful looks. Here she’s taking a selfie, which unlike today’s, you can see both arms.
Yes it’s true, selfies have been around long before Instagram was ever invented. But back in the day, they made people look beautiful – not narcissistic.
Looking less like intergalactic star fighters, and more like hipster earthlings – here’s Luke, Han, and Princess Leia enjoying some casual downtime at a diner between shots.
Many Hollywood stars can’t shake their onscreen image once their done filming. Lucky for Sean Connery, neither can he. Must be nice to get Bond girls on screen, and off!
Salvador Dali was not only the greatest surrealist painter of all time, but he was also a huge fan of hallucinogenic drugs. Which, probably explains why he’s walking an anteater down a public street. Weird :/
We recently lost not just the greatest boxer of all time, but also, the most influential athlete the world has ever seen. Here we see him out of the ring, and putting his vinyl into a record player custom built for his car.
Some things never change. And that thing here is famed country musician Willie Nelson. Here we see him in a pic taken over 40 years ago, and he looks exactly the same!
Old School Gangster
Here’s a shot of William Moore, a career gangster that shot many people himself. Literally. But damn did he ever dress well. Today’s thugs would be much more respected if they took a page out of Mr. Moore’s stylebook, instead of wearing their pants off their asses.
Like Willy Nelson, Raquel Welch looks as beautiful as ever. Back in the days when this photo was taken, men dressed like men, and women dressed like presents. Oh what a time.
Kings Of Comedy
Here we have the late Rodney Dangerfield and Redd Fox. Both are no longer with us, but both are responsible for making the comedians we have today as funny as they are. Gone, but never forgotten.
