Father: 1955

Father: 1955

Nothing says "father" like a knit sweater vest. I doubt if this was actually taken on Father's Day; it looks to me like it was a late winter morning when my brother shot this Ektachrome slide, probably still in the throes of ecstasy over his new Lordox 35mm camera. Love his tortoise-shell glasses; who knew that my father was a hipster? View full size.

Handsome, indeed

Your father was quite the handsome fellow. I wish I had more photos of my father, but he was usually the one taking the photos.

My father

I like very much "tt" photos. And "tt" do not forget. If you will come in Romania do not forget to give me a short message and I will try to arrange everyting for you. Of course free of charge, as we are very old friends via this site.
Regarding our theme "the father." I remember that I really started to love my father only after his death. It is sad. But it is the reality.

All the best from Bucharest!


Our Dads

Your father's image virtually radiates the gentle integrity that has been the backbone of the American family and our country's success in the world arena. I was blessed with a great dad too. I wish I had a good photo of him to share with you and the Shorpy community.

So happy!!

Your dad looks completely thrilled to have his picture taken!!

The Magic Hour

It seems you took many photos in early or late light -- or is it just the topography?

You didn't mention the most exciting element here

How did manage to get down on ground level at Wrigley Field to take the snap?
