People From The Past Who Remind Us What "Cool" Really Means! Part 1



Just as I was wondering what to post today I received an email from Nadia with a series of photos from the past. Nadia’s email was a shortened version, as I discovered on looking it up on the internet. Here is Part 1 . . thanks Nadia. (Nadia commented “I have to say that the first pic of Paul Newman is stunning to say the least...well at least from a female perspective!” I sought my wife’s opinion on that and she agreed).
