Cine Revue, Janvier 1969

Fire up the Quattrini!

I hope you all have a peaceful day tomorrow, and beyond, whatever you are doing and whatever your culture. I’ve scheduled as many lovely images as time would allow, but I will be back to normal with the usual goodies (imagery and real life frocks you can buy) in the New Year.

Thank you and Happy New Year!
