Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


Cee’s Black and White Challenge: 50 Years Or Older is the topic.  I decided to find photos I have taken of people older than 50.

I found these posters on a wall at the Bicycle Heaven when we went there on a photo field trip.



The Three Stooges were an American vaudeville and comedy act of the early to mid–20th century best known for their numerous short subject films. Their hallmark was physical farce and slapstick. In films, the Stooges were commonly known by their first names: “Moe, Larry, and Curly”.



The Beatles shaped not only music but also an entire generation. People mimicked all that they did, including haircuts, clothing, and outlook. Their style and innovative music set the standard for all musicians to follow. Members include: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr.
The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles,
was the title given as The Grammy celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Beatles trip to America and their debut on The Ed Sullivan show.
This special that aired in the same time slot exactly 50 years after the original event. Alas, as you know, it took place without two of the original Beatles, but Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney did take part.

  3. I well remember Saturday afternoon cinema with the 3 Stooges and of course the Beatles were around with a lot of reat music in the 60’s but dare I say I was a Motown fan mostly.

  4. Love the music of the Beatles. I grew up playing their records (which my parents had purchased). We had many hours of listening fun.

  5. LOVE the Beatles, and the Three Stooges for that matter. Great cultural icons for those of us in our 50s!

  6. Oh my! Don’t know if I should admit to being old enough to remember the 3 Stooges 🙂 But I’ll happily confess to loving the Beatles.

  7. The tribute to the Beatles was SOO fantastic this week!!! Happy Valentines Day my friend♥

  8. Oh those were the days 😉
    Thank you.

  9. I remember that telecast, Francine. Sis cried and Dad couldn’t understand what the hoopla was all about, especially seeing their long hair. If only he knew that today their hair would be considered common, even old-fashioned. This was another great post. 😉

  10. Loved your post, Francine. Thanks so much for the Beatles clip. It really made me laugh, especially the girls in the audience, going absolutely ballistic. 😀
