Keys to History

Even after retiring, some baby boomers tend to hang onto the cultural references of their youth. This greying couple is a typical example, voicing their continuing interest in a group that, 30 years earlier, had embodied the next generation's desire for change.

  • What

    After helping to transform the world irrevocably, the youth of the 1960s are now reaching retirement age, a transition the cartoonist has chosen to take a wry look at.

  • Where

    This is a tongue-in-cheek portrait of a contemporary Rolling Stones fan calmly knitting away in the comfort of her living room and remarking, "At last, a show for people our age!"

  • When

    The Rolling Stones put on concerts in Québec in 1997 and 1998 as part of a world tour.

  • Who

    This British rock group founded in the 1960s is still performing at the start of the 21st century.
