Friend Remembered

Every picture has a story they say, and thank you PSTEACH for your link to one of the many possible stories contained in the 'Clerk Work: 1958' photo.

HAVE FUN

Great stuff in this store: all the knives and scissors behind the counter, secret potions in jars and boxes behind glass, a hurricane lamp. I think I even see salamis. But what costs ten cents in the little plastic bags on the panel marked HAVE FUN?

35mm vs. other formats

35 mm is just no match for large or even medium format negatives. 8x10 negatives make for awesome enlargements.

Zorro, the sign of the Z

I loved that show. Watched it on our black and white Muntz TV as a kid back in the late '50s. I was Zorro!

Or good red herring

Is it fish or flesh or something else (Candy? Baseball cards?) that has those boys' intense interest? It's not the football. At any rate, both Elvis and the maternal figure are watching them closely.
