    For some reason I see a vague resemblance to Angelina Jolie....though I wonder if Angie's legs are this good!

    Always wondered whether those cars listed to one side after a few years.

    Holy cow! This flew over our house in East Hartford when I was a kid of 12 or so.
    Pratt and Whitney flew many tests of radial engines. This one was different, flying
    on the engine in the nose with the other four stopped. Lots of discussion in the
    schoolyard. The B17 in post 86683 is probably the same aircraft I saw.

    Today, Casselton, North Dakota is in the news because of a fiery train derailment just outside of town. So far, there have been no reports of casualties, but this is Castleton many years ago.

    It appears that the woman in the dark coat and hat in the foreground of this Babe Ruth photo is Kate Smith.

    My Dad had a couple of thousand hours in the Air Force version (EC121) during the 70's. They flew the airborne early warning and control mission now handled by the AWACS airplane. The AWACS program was delayed by congress over funding, and most people don't realize the Air Force flew the Connie until 1977. His unit flew them both from Florida and Iceland playing cold war footsie with the Russions. Dad alternated between locations.
     
  12. WOW! I seriously did not realise the USAF flew the EC121 until '77, an even greater and impressive service record for the Connie! Boatmark, be very proud of your dad a true 'cold war' warrior, right on the cutting edge of any conflict had it developed into a war.

    Doc.

  14. Elegance, especially the fur coat. Sadly most of those once-special stoles, coats, capes etc. are now either relics that have been hidden away in a closet trunk or worse yet, tossed out. Seems that once upon a time they were quite the fashion statement and the envy of many ladies who wished for one. As with the cars of those periods, it's another indication that times certainly have changed!

    I found these pictures of the Dayton Ohio area before Rt 35 was made into a highway and alot of the area was torn down,I was too young to remember and seems like another world. This garage is long gone and was on Wayne ave just north of where Keowee St now intersects and I think the picture was taken around 58.

    Love the old ad for Barney Oldfield tires.

    Old ads were very straight forward and simplistic in there layout and design.

    Great piece of history and thanks for posting.
