Let’s Discuss: Retro

What is it exactly? Officially, the term refers to something in reference from the recent past. I feel however that the term is more subjective than merely reference to a past era.

This is because ‘recent’ is also subjective. We wouldn’t consider Henry VIII to be a retro-period for instance. Perhaps however, we would consider the 80’s as the ultra-decade of where true-retro began (at least in my interpretation).

Flares? Elvis? Disco balls? Atari? What does ‘retro’ mean to you?ajeet-mestry-UBhpOIHnazM-unsplash
