Of wingtips and Vertigo

Him: I bought my wingtip Florsheims in 1981.
Her: What are those really expensive shoes I buy?
Him: Rockports.
Her: The cat ate my Rockports.
Him: I've had my wingtips resoled twice since I bought them.
Me: Did you see the movie, Vertigo?
Him: ... twice ...
Me: With Jimmy Stewart and...
Her: Kim...
Me: Novak
Him: Hell, my wingtips...
Me: In one of the street scenes there's Florsheim shoe shop. It's now a Johnson + Murphy.
Her: Johnson + Mercury?
Him: My wingtips were $90.
Her: Well, I guess we better go now.
Him: I'm going to keep getting them resoled.


Very cool photos from Vertigo...Then and Now. Thanks, Boing Boing.
