we just recently discovered a trove of amazing vintage photographs here and now along comes the NY Times 'the Lively Morgue' featuring their archival collection with great commentaries like this:-

March 4, 1968: “Don’t call them paper dresses,” began a report of about a line of disposable dresses that could be reimagined as posters. The one seen here features Cape Kennedy. Another? An Allen Ginsberg poem. “The intent is for pretty  young things to buy them on impulse and wear them to the beach or parties,” the reporter wrote. “Matrons, stay away.”

we spotted more paper dresses here including the Alan Ginsberg one and just wished someone would make these again as we would wear them in a heartbeat.
