BACKYARD KINGS, SOCAL, 1961

Backyard Kings

It’s a rare pair of gents who sit side by side in matching mod patio chairs while sporting matching Hawaiian shirts AND smart party crowns!

Since when do men like to dress alike and pretend to be royal twins?

Matchy, matchy, matchy always makes for a fun photo opp!

This is one of my all time fave slides! Of course in my new retro slide show, Pools, Patios ‘n’ BBQs, along with dozens more amazing images celebrating mid-century SoCal backyard life and style
– Sat morn, Feb 18th 10am at Palm Springs Museum.

Here’s to dressing alike, fake crowns and YOU!
