Flashback Monday: Fashion Springs Eternal

Reston bridge 60s clothes
Now that we're officially into spring, please to be enjoying this photo of two (Burnt) Bronze-era Restonians, ca. mid-1960s, taking a stroll around Lake Anne. As is true today, it's proof that Early Reston, much like Milan and Paris, was at the center of the haute couture movement, with the Van Gogh bridge serving as a makeshift runway that ended in a muddy construction site where Waterview Cluster sits today, the end.


  1. Those townhouses along the water looked nice without all of the overgrown 'gardens', and fences, that have been put in over the years.

  2. Well, from checking out those rad '60's clothes, it's nice to know that Men's Paunches never go out of fashion.

  3. I want to see the photo of Dr. Neville dying in the Lake Anne Plaza fountain.
