Dated Prose

I enjoy dated text.  They provide a narrative of progress that I hope continues to some point where our current word volleys seem quaint.  GoogleBooks has made near 2000 issues of LIFE magazine available and I picked this out of and from the March 1968 issue.

“If you’ve done any serious checking on four-track stereo-tape recorders, you know there are some great units around for $300 on up.  But from $200 on down the selection shrinks faster than your wool sweater at the launderette.”

March 1968 LIFE magazine, pg 72.

Magazines have a refreshing nowness like talk about Nixon rebuilding himself after being beaten by Kennedy.
