Olan Mills Awesomness, Round 2

Well kids, looks like a big “Congratulations” are in order to The Purvis Family for winning Round 1.

So here’s Round 2 of Olan Mills Awesomness – remember to VOTE for your favorite!!

Once again, I can’t take credit for finding the pictures or the brilliant quotes, but I can take credit for sharing them with you…

It’s called a leisure suit, ladies and germs, and if you didn’t have one in the early 70s, you were a big fat loser. Mine was teal. I wore it with a silk floral shirt and a long necklace with a football player pendant that we all got at that year’s team banquet. I was THE MAN.


Once they had two or three, how did they ever find enough energy or time alone to make more?


Umm, No Comment.

Olan Mills backdrop #4: Bucolic Meadow with Split Rail Fence. And is that an animal carcass behind her?

A pose like this will get you kicked right out of the Convention.


Oh, this is super. What better way to capture the charm and innocence of a child than to plunk him down amid the coarse trappings of a life lived in pursuit of wealth — oversized bills, an adding machine and the Wall Street Journal — and make him sit inside a briefcase? (They probably just fold up the little demon right in there to carry him home.) The finishing touch is the globe, which completes the portrait of the young Antichrist in Chess King vest and Red Goose loafers, plotting his takeover of the world (insert maniacal laugh). That is, as soon as someone changes his poopy diaper.


OK, there you go.

What is YOUR favorite?
