Impressive sharpness

From a 10x8 neg, on a beach with moving subjects. Really impressive considering the camera must have been on a tripod with a groundglass and the photographer under a darkcloth due to the sun.

It's just under the surface here somewhere...

If he's anything like my dog, he's searching for cat poop, a.k.a. kitty roca, in the sand.

Bare legs!

Three girls on the beach and nary a black stocking! I guess that's the difference between Coney Island and Atlantic City.


This was what they must have used before metal detectors were invented.

I spy

I think I see Shorpy Higginbotham in that photo. I'm glad he got a vacation at the beach.

Geez Louizz

I always wondered what a "sea dog" looked like!!

In Charge

I wonder who's walking whom.

Dog Years

Wow! That dog would be 735 years old now.

A timeless theme of kids with a dog on the beach. Great stuff.

A Dog on the Beach

is worth two in the woods?


Boys and a big dog on the beach. No good can come of this.
How can they get in trouble? Let us count the ways.

Bull Dogs

Once an American favorite, the American Staffordshire Terrier is now reviled as the pit bull. Someone, no doubt, will point out this is the same breed of dog from the Our Gang series of films starring the Little Rascals. Pete, the dog with a distinctive ring around his eye was an American Staffordshire Terrier.
The dog's popularity only declined after America entered an affluent life style affording the ownership of more breeds of dog companions.
