Kill the Rabbit, Kill the Rabbit

I found this old photograph along with some others in the flea market. I was pretty sad to see someone throw away a photo with such character. These men lived only 60 years ago, and no one cared to keep this picture of them.

The dates are stamped on the slides and range from 1970 to 1979. Most are overseas vacation photos, but it’s the family photos which … Continued
