Elaine’s was a form of inheritance to me, and I didn’t squander it.  Both my mother and my father were part of an intellectual and theatrical New York culture - intelligencia, litterati, glitterati, whatever - that made the city glow in the Sixties and Seventies… 
 – Jonathan Becker

A special portfolio by Jonathan Becker of his brilliant photographs documenting the heyday of Elaine’s Restaurant in New York, illustrated with his personal reminiscences,  is published in the first ever glorious Inaugural Issue of DRUGSTORE CULTURE.
