Re: 50s Timex with period-correct friends

That picture is AWESOME!!! I dont have any firearms pre-1983 or so but I am trying for one of the CMP surplus 1911s. I have a WWII Coca-Cola bottle and access to an olive-drab us army typewriter for the potential picture should I happen to get the 1911;)

Came across this while I had the tv on Turner Classic Movies the other day. A 1952 movie titled "We're Not Married".
