Vintage Love Saturday 11/20/10

Sourthern Lady's Vintage Blog sponsers Vintage Love Saturdays.  This weekend, the category is open, so there should be quite a variety of items.  Exciting.

This week I'm featuring a magazine from Flamingo K's Collectible Shop that my dearest hubby has had since it arrived in his mailbox -- Newsweek's edition of the Moon Landing in 1969.  For those of us who were around then, it was such an exciting time.  People all over held their breath as the ship launched and the astronauts stepped out of the capsule onto the moon.  No one knew what might happen, and we were glued to our TVs and radios.

I remember it as well. Families gathered around the t.v. watching an unbelieveable event taking place. A great collectible item!

you say we were glued to our TVs and radios ... you are right! i was glued to a black & white RCA console tv ... the screen was small but the maple cabinet was huge ... could we have imagined that the term "space age" would now seem "retro" ?
