Computer operator error...............

............caused the absence of the daily "Fifty years ago" posting yesterday.  In atonement, we double up today and bring you this The Atlantic.com pictorial essay of 1964.  There are, appropriately enough, 50 photos.  Via their selection, the editors would have you believe it was quite the special year.  I was only twelve, but since the epic collapse of the Phillies in the fall of 1964 scarred my psyche for years, who am I to argue.

  1. We could see the tip of the span from our bedroom window from our 96th Street "two family" in Brooklyn's Bay Ridge. We lived in the upstairs flat. Downstairs lived our Greek landlord Angelo. He took great pride in his place and we ensured he never wondered about us.
