Ha ha. I didn't know it was that easy! I've been doing it the long way round!
Thanks for the short cut!
Flinders Street,Melbourne,Australia ,mid 60's. Latest car I see is 64.
I started my working life in June of that year and parked RIGHT THERE each day.
Danielson's Thriftway in Gladstone, Oregon - the Oregon City store closed after 100 years in business, too much competition from the big boys.
very nice, thanks for the search tips!
Kinney Shoes. I remember getting shoes from there all the time. Kinney Shoes had a slogan "Great American Shoe Store" or GASS. A lot of their shoes had GASS molded in the sole and eventially the G would where off, So all that was left was ASS. If you kept wearing them you would wear a hole in them. Well you get the idea. LOL
Do you have to have a certain operating system to use this method? I ask because it doesn't work for me. All I can come up with is a larger photo of the image itself in another window with nothing else there and no way to search.
Thanks for the lesson, much appreciated.
I just tried it on Google Chrome and got nothing.......
Come on guys help us oldies out...
Type in Google and hit search, you will get a link for google.com and then just click on images. Follow the prompts...
Simpler still: In Firefox, drag an image into upper right search bar and release, then click "search by image" on next page.
Well, it must be because of a different operating system because I have Firefox and I get the same results as with the other method, just another window open with the photo surrounded by black with nothing else there.
I find it totally amazing that this ability even exists!
Lexington Avenue at 51st Street, NYC. Likely between '60-'62. The Bickfords' address was 560 Lexington Ave. Buildings have changed. Manhole covers and subway vents haven't.
Strikers at North American Aviation plant, deuce in foreground, Willys on street
More strikers, another Willys (looks like photo got printed backwards)
Northrop Gamma, 1937
Douglas YB-7 prototype
Dolphin amphibian (think these were used to ferry passengers to Catalina Island)
Boeing 80A (I never heard of this type until I found the photo)
This photo captioned "Laura Ingalls and her Orion" Could this be the same Laura Ingalls of "little house on the prarie" fame?
Also captioned Northrop Beta (guess there was more than one Beta version)
Gilmore Red Lion (pretty sure that this is Roscoe Turner's plane)
Captioned "Northrop and his flying wing." 1930. Jack Northrop was a revolutionary designer who pioneered the flying wing design. He tried to sell the Army Air Corps and later the Air Force two designs, the YB-35 and the jet-powered YB-49 (actually B-35's converted to jet power). The Air Force found the designs unstable and refused both planes, and Northrop, bitterly disappointed, left his company. Right before his death, the Air Force cleared him to see the B-2, the culmination of his flying wing ideas, finally possible because of computer controls.
Northrop Planes, 1930
Sharon Tate, Roman Polanski.
I've seen a few guys on this thread wearing those hats in the early 60's. I think I've seen Ed Roth (Rat Fink creator) wearing one. Did they have a name? Are they just a forgotten piece of pop culture?
Years ago, I remember them being called hillbilly hats.
WWII Bond drive at Northrop Aircraft in Hawthorne,Ca.
My Dad at top of ladder next to P-61 Black Widow all weather fighter 1943.
I'm guessing this is Monaco - early=to-mid 50's. A line of Fazzazzas ready to go.
Earlier this week, I drove around the 'track' there (on the public roads). A week earlier, I visited the Ferrari factory and museum in Maranello.
Got home to London last night after driving around the Le Mans track.
Good times - shame they've come to an end. Ah well, at least I have the memories.
Kinda like what this thread provides.
Cheers to you Mr Southurn for continually posting some great pics that I can relate to.
A very quickly passing phase. Ed Roth kept it going as part of his image for a while then switched to a top hat. Occasionally he would show up with the hill billy hat. Depended on his whims.
afaik '55 Monaco, so they were still Lancias then.
Yes, Monaco with the Lancia D50 line-up in 1954
Roth sold them for quite awhile. I got one at a big car show in Chicago back in the 60's. I always called it a Rat Fink hat! Too bad it got tossed. Gary
