The Good Old, Bad Old Days

Wealthholders 65 and over may remember 1961 for the bad news. Berlin Wall. Bay of Pigs.

Here's a memory jogger to get them reminiscing about the happy side of the year:

In 1961 Jaguar unveiled every trust-fund baby's dream – an art object that doubled as a motor car. Today The New York Times commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the E-Type's arrival.

Below, a page from the Jaguar ad that ran in The New Yorker fifty years ago this April.

Another good thing from 1961? The Beatles' first concert!
