  1. I'm curious where these pictures were taken. I was a teenager in the 80s & I don't remember anyone wearing shorts that short! lol

  2. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale and graduated HS in 1983. These pictures are complete déjà vu for me. I almost expected to see myself or my friends in them. I don't recognize any specific locations unfortunately but the hats from The Button and an FIU shirt make me believe it's somewhere in south Florida.  As for the shorts, they were called "Dolphin shorts" and they were ubiquitous. My gf probably had 10-15 pairs lol

  3. As a Southern California kid, there were some similarities, but these teens looked quite a bit different. I think Ft. Launder dale girls liked to wear their Dolphins higher up on their waists. :)

  4. The hair style on many of the girls looks more late 70's than early 80's. Its the "Farah Faucet" hair-do.

    These pics look like they are from early 80's. Dolphin shorts, Bass flip flops, and feathered hair. I wasn't quite a teenager in the early 80's, but I still wore them constantly.

  6. The girls were not fat asses like they are today. Everyone looks happy, healthy and without the bad attitude. Goddamn, I hate the feminist's that ruined American Women. And the pervasive obesity started with high fructose corn syrup and low fat recommendations to increase profits.

  8. Hmmm, 1982 at the very latest. More like '77.

  10. They are so damned cute. Most are tipping well over 180 lbs now.
    We were young, once.

    And how ridiculous will Hollister and sports shirts be in 30 years?
