238 Humboldt Street, ca. 1915
The address is scrawled on the back. Date is a wild guess. 238 Humboldt Street is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The brick building is long gone; Google street view shows a newer development.
These boys are something else. Old photographs usually show children with dour looks, perhaps from having to pose for so long. This picture is alive with personality, and one can imagine the boys running off to their street games as soon as the photographer was done.

Chili's Classy Cut-Out, 1966
From the same issue of Millie the Model. The '60s encompassed so many different styles, from sleek and chic to bohemian/hippie.

Millie the Model, 1966
From Issue 137 of Millie the Model. All the paper dolls in this issue are missing the tabs, which is strange.
