Pittsburgh in 1961 from the bluffs on the west bank of the Ohio. Certainly didn't look like this at the turn of the last century or this.

The Big Catch

The Big Catch

Three young boys show off their big catch. The boy on the far right could be Earnest (or Ernest) Johnston. Otherwise the place, location, and photographer are unknown (likely taken in central Nebraska).

On a side note, notice the dark faces and pale legs. These boys clearly worked outside wearing overalls and jeans. And the pale band on their forehead shows they wore hats.

Richard Paul Wallace, about 1919

My Dad in Anderson, Indiana, about 1919. Knickers and his hat on sideways. He became an accomplished pilot in the 30's and Marine bomber pilot in WWII. After the war he settled in Southern California. A truly great man.

Pennsy Es on the Horseshoe Curve

Pennsy Es on the Horseshoe Curve

My Dad wasn't really a train fan, so to speak, but we're genetically disposed to appreciate transport in its many guises.

He roamed western Pennsylvania as a field director for the Presbyterian Church and on one of his trips in February 1960, he made a stop at the Horseshoe Curve and recorded this express train headed to points east.

Shadow of a Google Camera

Shadow of a Google Camera

This is a shadow of the 360-degree camera on top of the Google Street View vehicle. Photo is on Fulton Street in San Francisco (in the 500 block). Nearby Laguna Street has a police unit following the Google camera around. Wonder if they were suspicious enough to get pulled over.
