Mark wondering why my posting with my old roadster disappeared. Just because it had a 65 Chev in it?? That photo also had my 48 Hudson in it sitting in the carport before we started work on it. Will repost without the 65 I guess.
Bit nit picking??
sent you a pm
Yeah, you and I chatted a little about this 'vette. I'd taken the shot at the Chicago
Amphitheatre in '70 or '71, along with the few other R&C show photos I posted.
heres a rectangular photo thread
Not a brownie but from my dad's Polaroid Land camera. Remember they self developed right out of the camera. Circa '67. Telltale streaks where the fixer chemical swab missed.
Here are some of mine from the sixties.
My first attempt at header building, using some rusty tailpipes I found behind a gas station.
These truly are Instamatic photos taken by me in 1968 of the '65 Coronet just
purchased by my pal, Joe Mangine. Supposedly an ex-Grand-Spaulding car, Gary
Dyer says he never drove a sedan and Norm Krause said that without numbers
or paperwork he couldn't verify it. These photos were taken in a cinder block
garage owned by the proverbial "little old lady", a teacher I had in my grade
school days. This was in Lemont, Illinois. If anyone knows anything about this
car I'd really like to hear from you.
There are a lot of non 3 x 3 photos from our family photo albums. There is a reason for that. The early Brownie Cameras large and small took photos that were developed in the 3 x 3 format. Then as the albums got more creative, those photos were cut down to fit the spaces provided.
These were trimmed to get a standard 3x5 format.
Here are a couple from my wife’s family album that I have always thought it were classics. It was (as all older photos from my wife’s files) taken with a Brownie Camera. The two older sisters hiding inside of the family 1955 Chevy, only to be discovered by the little brother wanting to play with the “gurgles.” The name he called the sisters. (Even the originals in the albums were trimmed to fit into specific family albums)
The 3 x3 Kodak Brownie original(s) photo was cut down to fit into a photo album horizontally. Hence, the look of a full size 8 x 10 format. Photo albums were the big thing and most families had a Brownie camera or two. Digitally, the originals were not able to be re-created in the 3 x 3 format. Too much was lost to the editing program when saved for the modern photo files.
Still hanging around after all of these years… gathering dust.
A Brownie Hawkeye box camera (Her mom and dad’s) and my wife’s own Brownie Holiday box camera. (Both now reside on my son’s book case, alongside of our LP record collection)

Where are the 3 x 3 photos from my family files? Our dad had his favorite Graflex Crown Graphic 4x5 large format camera he lugged around to most family events. He was a fanatic about his own photographs, so we never saw small bodied cameras like the Brownie until we got our 35 mm SLR film cameras, years later. Even with the larger negative and actual photo, we still cut the photos down to a 3x5 size to fit in our family albums. Now, they are all digitized.
I could cut them to fit a 3 x 3 frame… The only photos that came even on both sides were the 2.25" x 2.25" twin lens camera slides and negatives. Not quite 3 x 3…My dad did have an early Poloroid Land Camera, that shot out square photos in B/W, but most of those were not as clear as his 4x5 Graflex photos.
You have a nice collection of original 3x3 photos with the borders still in tact.
Real deal photos by Steve Reinke...
I was hoping you would share some of your old photos on this thread Marty.

I had that same Kodak Brownie Holiday flash that Jnaki showed in post 140. I even had it sent to me in Vietnam as I could get 620 film from the laundry girl if I gave her money to pick it up in town. I gave her the camera after I bought an instamatic off one of the crew chiefs after he came back from R&R with a Yachika Electro 35. I still have that Instamatic and discovered that he was killed in a crash early in 1969 recently.
Some photos that were given to me by a former coworker of some of his cars over the years. The 40 Ford coupe had a J2 Olds and was reportedly well known in Seattle for racing.

I think the blue Model A pickup with the plate 57803 belonged to
Ken Kay from Kitchener Ontario.
Somewhere, there are other pictures of his truck.
