I happened to notice on Instagram a bunch of photos of young Mike. It's notable how high-quality they are, both in terms of being shot in color, as well as the often unusually good photographic eye of the photographer who shot the pictures.

Is it safe to assume that most of those photos were shot by Milton?

And interestingly, I think the fact that they are color and seem to have been taken with more expensive equipment than any photos I've seen of the young Wilson boys, to me indicates the probable the large class and money differences between the two families at this time, the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Seems that some of the seeds of the differences between the two families can be hinted at just by the photos that have been made public.

Is there any chance that these could be included in The Weirdest Pictures Of Mike Love thread?  Wink

Yes! Let's do it! Anything to make OSD more like Mike! Lol! How about a picture in a Hawaiian shirt with John Stamos? Maybe if you experience his life, you will have more sympathy for him.

No matter what you think of Mike, any pics of him as a kid should most definitely 100% be off-limits for that thread.  I'm sure in your heart you know this is right.

And there's really nothing weird about these photos, I just thought it was interesting that my takeaway was that the Loves had money and the Wilsons did not.  And most likely however their brains got wired from those childhood experiences with money probably to some degree reflects on their behavior as adults.

Mike's pretty lucky, because I imagine it's relatively uncommon for anyone born 1941 to have a bunch of high-quality color photos of their childhood.

Yeah he has done some bad sh*t, but so has everyone else. It's almost comical this grudge you have on Mike.

More than pleased to provide you with some humor. But, really, Syd, don't take it too hard.  Cool Guy

This board is the nearest I'll get to social media but the photos of Mike seem interesting from a historical point of view. Any family photos are really. The Love family was more affluent at the time than the Wilsons. So they were lucky enough to indulge taking photos.
