    Born too late

    ...and somewhere out of view is an Imperial/ Packard/ Caddy, with a suit making sure he ekes a buck twenty five, out a one dollar profit situation. I was pipe lining in easements, with a backhoe (limited to no brakes). Our boss showed up to see what the big issue was, in the Catskills in February, with 3+ feet of snow and ice covered access trails. He figured he'd put his big boy pants on, and show us all how to "git 'er done" in the sub zero temps. Within 10 minutes he skidded it down a 30 degree slope, into a sub contractor's vactor. He wound up on the hood, wadded onto the exhaust stack/air filter(no seat belt). Still didn't fix the damn thing. pics...

    Here's something you don't see every day. The Airship "Los Angeles" on the "USS Saratoga".

    I have a feeling that they don't tilt back like they do today.

    Before Yosemite became an almost "theme park", you could just go there and camp out.

    One of the things you never want to do is to give the "bird" to a motorcycle cop.

    Rita Hayworth, 1950's. I told her, "Ya gotta wear shoes when you ride a bike.", she didn't listen.

    These painters were all ex-policemen. They left the department because they decided that police work was too dangerous. This is the Eiffel Tower while under construction.

    Marshal Wyatt Earp. He left Dodge City, Kansas to go to Tombstone, Arizona. He was accused of Murder after the famed gunfight at the OK Corral (1881, which lasted a total of 30 seconds), and left AZ and headed to Los Angeles. He spent a lot of time in L.A., and also in San Diego with periodic trips to San Francisco, and panned for gold in Alaska. He passed away in L.A. in 1929, ten years before I was born. Over his entire life, he was never hit with a bullet.

    Jimmy gets a speeding ticket from the CHP, on September 30, 1955. Within 45 minutes from the time of this photo, Jimmy would be dead. A Ford, driven by Donald Turnipseed, made a left turn in front of him, which is what caused the accident. If this had happened today, Turnipseed would have been charged with vehicular manslaughter in California. As it was, he didn't even get a traffic ticket.

    George What a great collection of pictures. I think I could a comment on each one but my favorite would be Rita. She really was a beauty.

    Those crank handles are adjusting controls for the charger. An early electric could charge overnight for the most part.
