Mom & Dad at Disneyland (1956)

Mom & Dad at Disneyland (1956), originally uploaded by candyruth.

This was within the first year Disneyland opened and boy were we all excited! We lived only about 25 miles away, and it was the favorite place to go for birthdays (my sister and I could each bring one friend for such occasions) and to take visiting relatives. It’s still one of my favorites!… (candyruth)

Wow candyruth… this is such a wondeful vintage photo.. clicked in the first year Disneyland opened up.. wow… so very interesting i must say… thank you candyruth for sharing… tiandra…

See where this picture was taken

Thank you A Wallis for sharing this gem with us… your entire photo-stream is so very interesting… love the back end click of this Plymouth… especially since it is clicked in Newfoundland.. this adds an even greater intrigue for me… Newfoundland… although i have only been there one time.. holds a charm in my mind which is almost sacred… its hard to explain… but i think it has to do with how gentle the people of the land are.. the great hospitality extended one who takes time to visit the rock….

again… thank you for sharing… tiandra…

The Business Man

The Business Man

I really enjoy this one: Depicted is an obviously successful guy – just before The Depression (backside dated July 1929). I am really trying to figure out the roles each person played. The Boss can be clearly identified.

But who is the happy woman – like a servant – placed behind the hood of the car? An unusual pose. Is she his wife? Or indeed a servant ? Unlikely. When I look at her face, I see her contemplating I am not in front, but it is a good spot where life has put me in where I can enjoy prosperity from the second row.

Are the people on the left their children and spouses? Note how they are standing close to each other, while the arms of Mr.Boss have created more space for him. The woman on the left also stands out. Not only because of her size, but because her dress is much less fashionable than the other women. The most sexy girls are the ones close to Mr.Boss – that ultra-stylish hat from the 20’s, amazing!

I am wondering what finally happened to them in fall 1929? Could Mr Boss escape his economical fate and turned up even more successful after the stock market crash? Or did he have to sell his big house, his car and order his wife to get out behind her hiding space and join him to the West?

The car still remains to be identified – we should be thankful to the happy lady in the second row that she stepped behind so this task is now easier for us. Agree Jay El?

Moonlight Shadow

Actually the sun, having a hard time to break through on a foggy day in a small village in Central Switzerland. This was my first try with HDR and fog. HDR allows some more degrees of freedom which is a big advantage – photos taken in fog can easily become flat and boring.

A big version you see…. here… (oldsads)

oldsads.. this one as as beautiful as the posting i did yesterday of..(late in the fall) . these two are both such gems… i have linked them…

Late In Fall

Ok, I admit, here I pulled all the stops in Photoshop. As a fact I don’t like silver boxy-shaped cars. So I had them towed away. Also a blue tarpaulin was destracting. And because all of Photoshop’s function were lose, a destracting traffic sign and a sticker on the windshield of the Olds had to go, too:-)

Wow oldsads… this is ever a beautiful click… its will find its way into the hearts of many a favorite…. i am thrilled i found it…!

1942 chrysler and Bonnie Blinked

1942 chrysler and Bonnie Blinked

I had to look a long time to find this car. I finally found one picture using google that identified it as a 1942 Chrysler.

It is probably a brand new car. It was purchased at Kavarno motors in California. Unusual name. Google found an Isak Kavarno who imigrated from Norway and worked for General Motors in Santa Barbara, California.

And Bonnie or maybe Mabel, blinked… She was dressed nice though. Pin-stiripe suit and strappy high heels. She is probably a little upset right now. She doesn’t know whether her boyfriend is taking a picture of her or his new car. I think she’s a bit miffed.

Her boyfriend smoothes it out though and 20 odd years later Lennon and McCartney will write a song about it…”Baby, you can drive my car.”
