Toronto. Don Henley was a singer and percussionist for The Eagles before that dysfunctional group imploded. Most of the group went on to play solo – some with their own bands. Henley made a CD called “Building the Perfect Beast”. The lead song was called “The Boys of Summer“, a tag earlier applied to baseball players.
Micky Mantle was one of the great players of his time and he was captured at each base during a home run he hit for his team, the New York Yankees, at Cleveland’s stadium. A serious drinker and womanizer, Mantle paraphrased near the end of his life, “If I’d known I was gonna live this long, I’d have taken a lot better care of myself”.
It was unusual in that intentional multiple exposures on a single negative with such accuracy were unheard of in that era. So called double exposures in camera were considered a rookie mistake. In the darkroom more than one negative could be and often was used to make a print.
My thanks to George Dunbar for sharing this remarkable photograph with me.
