Old Couple Still in Love

This photograph was taken in Vale Oregon in 1941. The couple are relaxing after a July 4th parade. I can't help but look at this picture and wonder if there could possibly be a better illustration of true love? Yesterday my wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. I hope we would still be as close as this couple in another 20 years.

  3. This picture captures true intimacy. Something we have lost track of with the blatant sexuality in today's culture.

  7. Amazing. I love this picture, sometimes I wish I lived back then. When things were much more simple, like the love between these two.

  8. This is a lovely photo, but I'll bet the couple isn't as old as we imagine. Without the benefits of hair dye and make-up, without all our labour-saving devices, and with a probable difficult life, people seemed to age so much earlier. Can't help but think of a photo of my grandmother where she looks to be in her late 60's but is only 42!
    Great site!
