How Unfortunate

This is "Jack, 16, Clifton, Kansas"  I'll bet when he saw this little hand colored gem  he wasn't happy.  No doubt his mother showed it to him, and he said, "Aw mom, you can't show that to anyone.  It looks like I'm wearing lipstick."  And, no doubt, his mother replied, "Don't be silly.  No one will think that."  And then she showed it to all his aunts, and uncles, and every other family member.  But did she show it to his first girlfriend?  Probably.   The colorist made some unfortunate choices.

  1. Indeed! Poor Jack. And the mark on the photo now makes it look as if he's wearing an earring. Not a fashion statement of that era. But he is a handsome lad with his tussled hair.
