Judging from the bell bottoms that wasn't that long ago.... OOPS giving away my tenure on earth.

Bell bottom pants were popular in the 20's and 30's too, the 70's was just a rehash. :-)

I think Mark has a point. The bell bottoms said 70's to me, but the rest of the photo says late 1940's or possibly early 1950's. The Panama hat suggests early 1950's. Maybe the boy's mom made up the ensemble to fit her idea of a "gay young blade" of the the 1920's just for the picture.

"Gay young blade" ???

You are dating yourself with that verbiage

That phrase has a whole new meaning today.

I was thinking more along the lines of Rudolph Valentino;
