Summer Afternoon

Summer afternoon—summer afternoon;

to me those have always been

the two most beautiful words in the English language.

–Henry James

Sunshine and shade. Brother and sister. Backyard and swing.

Summer afternoon–summer afternoon.

First of all, take a moment to revel in the 1971 glory of this photo.  The pants. The boots. The chevron and plaid and stripes.  Oh, my:

Automatiek / Automat for snacks

I immediately fell in love with those photo.  For its own 1971 Netherlands fabulousness, but also because it immediately reminded me of one of my favorite 1967 books.

So, my pop quiz for you today is: which book is it?
