Butler Family Buick: 1957

Edward and Gwen Butler, my grandparents, lived in this trailer in Connecticut. It's rather dwarfed by the massive '55 Buick and the 15-foot TV antenna. They had just returned from a trip to England, hence the luggage at the door. Photo by Edward Butler circa 1957 on a 35mm Kodachrome slide, scanned February 2021. View full size.

Over the Boardwalk: 1984

Atlantic City isn't the only place with a Boardwalk, ya know. Out here in California we've had the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk since 1907. Its Giant Dipper wooden roller coaster is a National Historic Landmark. In another kind of history, back in 2008 its late, lamented Fun House was the location in one of my very earliest Shorpy photo submissions. I took my 1984 shot on 35mm Kodacolor VR 100 with my Konica Autoreflex T. View full size.
