HELLO SAILOR Part 20 : Starring Vintage Sailor Boys : Post 20. (This is my 20th Hello Sailor post from another of my blogs)
I have always liked old photos and postcards of handsome sailors. To me the images are iconic and very interesting to look at or collect. In this lot of images, I have selected some really nice portrait shots, and a few of sailors and their best mate or buddies. I don't know why I have this fascination.... I'm interested in many things.... who knows, in another life I may have known some of these guys. Maybe the photos are like little time capsules waiting to be opened. A second in a boys life, who was he? what happened to him? Was he happy? Did he find love? Could he be true to himself? A picture tells a thousand words, and sadly very few of these have names attached. At least with my fascination for vintage movie star postcards, I can look up on IMDb who the star was, and teach myself about movie history. But with most of these photos, we can only wonder. Enjoy.
