Here’s Proof That Old-School Cool is the Best Kind of Cool

You might recall that a wee while back I put together an article celebrating the damn fine photography of Bob Willoughby, because what good ol’ Bob managed to do was capture the Hollywood elite off guard and onset – humanising them if you will.

However, when you think of old school Hollywood, you’re always going to think old school cool. The coolest of the cool. The birth of the cool. Having stumbled upon some more classic photos, I’ve decided to collate the cool. I won’t blather on too much, hell, you’re probably not even reading this anyway.

Here are the photos. Enjoy, imagine being a part of it all, and wonder why we get lumped with Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Shia LeBeouf, The Only Way is Essex, Made in Chelsea, The Kardashians, et al.
