Camping 1955

This is the trailer we had for many years of weekend and weeklong camping trips. As mentioned in the previous photo, my aunt and uncle had the same trailer and we often met at some campground or national park.
A couple of years later, Dad got a newer (’56) Buick that had the same 2-tone design as the trailer and had the trailer painted to match the car. It was a sight to behold. Then, in 1961, my parents sold the trailer so we could get new carpets in the bedrooms. An odd trade-up….(candyruth)

Screaming Laughter

No information on this one. Shows a ’41 Buick. She has obviously having great fun with her friend who can be seen sitting behind in the Buick. Probably shot by her boyfriend, who didn’t know how to handle a camera – the reason for laughter (my guess)….(vintagephoto)

Dennis Dixson Pro User has written this great comment under this photo…. i just have to share it with you…

This is one of the reasons why I think photography is just about the coolest thing there is. This is a scene that would probably never be captured by a painter or sculpter but here it is perfectly preserved like home canned tomatoes for us to enjoy long after the Summer has past…(Dennis Dixson)

Thank you vintagephoto for sharing this treasure with us… tiandra…
