Subject: a picture for you PROPER DRESS FOR FLIGHTS
ON YOUR RECENT TRIP BET YOU DIDN’T SEE FELLOW PASSENGERS DRESSED SO FORMALLY. THIS PHOTO SHOWS US LEAVING ON OUR HONEYMOON FLIGHT TO SICILY MAY 5, 1962. Note granny’s white gloves and my felt hat. this was normal attire in those days. Unthinkable to look otherwise.

The “raggar” subculture, which emerged in Sweden in the 1950s was inspired by the American greasers. “Raggare” are mostly small-town gangs known for their love of rockabilly music, leather vests, pomade and, of course, cars - the raggare’s mode of transport, sleeping place, chick magnet and party venue. Thanks to the raggar culture, there are more restored 1950s American cars in Sweden than in the entire US.
