How fabulous are these pictures of vintage spectacles?! According to the Flickr account they belong to they are from a 1970s optometrist office and were originally printed on clear plastic strips so customers could hold them up to their face to see how the different frames suited them.

Now… I don’t have clear plastic to print these onto but I do have Photoshop at my disposal…

Yeah… I’m a bit of a dork but… I think the ‘Band O’Gold’ frames might suit me best. What do you think?
