Do you love looking at old photos? I could browse them all day, especially of famous people in the 50s, 60s and 70s, so I wanted to share this cool collection of jet-setting celebrities at airports – for some escapism and to put us in the holiday mood. I don’t know what it is about these eras, but people look effortlessly cool and perhaps less self-conscious than some of today’s over-polished celebrities.
