Default Pan Am Flight Stewardesses in Times Square

I saw three very nice Pan Am flight stewardesses in Times Square this morning so I snapped this photo.



I wanted to post-process it like it was taken in the 60s, it's probably easy, but don't know how.

Thank you for looking. C&C welcome.

Here's a converted to B&W with grain added (PSE 8) try.

I couldn't add vignette but that might have added to the vintage look.

Looks very good -- like a newspaper clipping. I wish the girls could see this I think they will like it.

Must have been doing a promo for the new TV show. Nicely done...both the color version as well as the b&w conversion. Did they pose especially for you? Looks like they were!

Thank you, Jehan. Yes, they posed for me. I saw them walking ahead of me. If I read their body language right, they just started walking after being told to walk around and were unsure where to go. So when I overtook them and aimed my camera at them, they seemed pleased that finally someone noticed and they can finally do what they're asked to do, that is, to be noticed and pose.

They had a bodyguard with them, too, a big, bald, weight-lifter-physique guy in business suit who promptly stood aside outside my shot, quite the opposite of what I've gotten accustomed to where I'm often given the palm of the hand.

ABC-7 is across the street broadcasting Good Morning America so they might have appeared there later.

#2) I only managed a bracket of 3 shots. This is the first. The girl on the right was lagging behind the other two so she hurried to be included in the picture. I remembered Corel Paintshop Pro X2 has a "Time Machine" effect so I used its "Box Camera" filter which was popular up to the 60s according to PSPX2.
