1970 NEWSWEEK ARTICLE ABOUT NOSTALGIA


A couple of weeks ago, I found this great Forry Ackerman photo that I'd never seen before. It was originally part of an article on nostalgia in the December 28, 1970 issue. I posted it on Twitter and had a request to post the complete article. Now you can see what your parents or grandparents were nostalgic about. This article is still relevant to any generation. Just switch out the pop culture nostalgia with your own era's pop nostalgia and then it will apply to you. Be sure to read the last page. The author, Disney historian John Culhane, could have easily been talking about today. (Btw, I want to go back in time and visit that End of An Era store in San Francisco and buy some props from the famous MGM prop auction!)

Great article! I visited John Fawcett's amazing Toy Museum a few years ago and did an article on it; http://www.3-dmonster.com/2009/08/fawcetts-toy-museum_07.html his collection was UNBELIEVABLE!! I'm still bummed I never made it to the "Ackermansion", though.
