Youth in Japan

The Life Magazine Archive has been a consistent source of inspiration for since it was launched a few months back. What’s neat about it for me is that I can constantly run across new photos of something that I really think is cool.

My most recent find was photos from an article called Youth in Japan, which seems to document a day and night in the life of a group of scooter kids in 1964. The photos are so neat to see, and I love everything that they’re wearing. I’m also jealous of their bikes, I wish I had a sweet little scooter like that to run around LA on!

Check out some more photos under the cut.
