Then and Now: 1945 and 2010

Then and Now: 1945 and 2010

From 1945, a photo of my brother and I and our two Uncles taken in Van Wert, Ohio. We decided to reenact the photo at a family get together in Valparaiso, Indiana in 2010. From left to right: Jerry (me), Uncle Roger, Uncle Stanley and Brother Terry.

Pascagoula

Pascagoula

This house was moved in the early 1900's to it current location at 1009 Resca De La Palma Street in Pascagoula, Mississippi. It has survived with a few modifications every hurricane since at least 1910. It was a Sears kit home. My great grandparents built it. They were charcoal makers when they came to Pascagoula in the late 1800's.

Cereal Stocker: 1939

This is my colorized version of "Cereal Stocker." I researched all of the box art and most of it is accurate to the branding of the time. View full size.

Team Cadillac: 1927

Team Cadillac: 1927

Here is my colorized version of this Shorpy photo. Seems to me the bathing suits were a little "revealing" for 1927, but I'm sure they sold plenty of Cadillacs because of them. View full size.

The Hudson Brothers: 1949

The Hudson Brothers: 1949

Previously in Calpella, my brother was being artistic, while back home I was waiting to be born a few days later. Three years have gone by and now he's back at our grandparents' home, minus one appendix and plus one little brother. Needless to say, we're not the musical Hudsons, nor are we related to Henry, but we did come hither via the family car back there, a 1948 Hudson Super Six. This was the same day I didn't fall in the well. Photo by my sister, scanned from the original "120" negative. View full size.

I started working in a hi-fi shop at 18. This was the system I assembled when I was 20. I'm still addicted today.

My brother, age 9, working with a set of color pencils at our grandfather's house in Calpella, California. Four days later, he was in the hospital in nearby Ukiah having an emergency appendectomy, while 95 miles to the south in Marin County I was in another hospital being born. As our hometown paper headlined the item, "Plenty Excitement." My sister took the photo with a box Brownie. Scanned from the original "116" 2½ x 4¼ negative. View full size.
