1960: Completely Lost His Marbles

Lonnie Lien was photographed in 1960 playing a game I don’t see much these days: marbles. There are plenty of games with marbles in them (Hungry Hungry Hippos, Crossfire, Chinese Checkers) but I don’t see kids playing plain marbles anymore.

This had to have been a staged photo, but it’s a pretty good one, and it’s a good illustration of what they were trying to get across: the advent of spring. Also, I just like cute kid photos.
