Yashica Guy Advertisement – 1959

From Asahi Camera Yearbook 1959.

yashica guy 1959

The latest model camera depicted here is the Yashica YE (bottom center) but not yet the Yashica-Nicca 35 YF which was released in the latter part of 1959 (maybe September).

I haven’t been able to identify the model posing with the Yashica camera, some say he’s Mr. Banks from Mary Poppins. The mustache is wrong and the wink and the pipe seem to be some sort of known look of the guy. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris

(for Atlanta Magazine Instagram)

25 April 2020. On 24 April 2020, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp allowed gyms, fitness centers, bowling alleys, body art studios, barbers, cosmetologists, hair designers, nail care artists, estheticians, and massage therapists, among others to re-open, with theaters and dine-in restaurants to follow on 27 April. In March, Kemp had closed or curtailed operations of ‘nonessential’ business in Georgia for coronavirus concerns. Now, he has re-opened them even as deaths in Georgia from the disease have passed 900 and continue to rise.

Whatever happened to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial?

In the 1982 movie, we see E.T. board his spaceship and presumedly return to his planet. But, since E.T. was said to be hundreds of years old you can’t expect a galactic traveler like him to stay put.

Here’s evidence that he returned to Earth and opened up a chain of supermarkets!

Fun at the movie theater. After watching The Last Jedi tonight, I took a quick peek in the control room and my camera happened to go off!

Have a Happy Weekend!
