The Real Astro Boy

I came across a vintage photograph on eBay today which has me captivated. Although its link to vintage textiles is tenuous at best, what we can see of the subject's collar indicates he's wearing a pretty damn groovy shirt so he merits a place here. Besides, I think he's absolutely awesome.

Who knew that Astro Boy was based on a human prototype? And his original name wasn't Tetsuwan Atomu at all - it was Kenneth.

I love it when real people have real things to say :)
