That movie scared the crap outta me when i was a kid!
Ironic, this being a still photo, eh? LOL. Gary

I agree `37. Every evening I bring up the Internet radio, sit back, look at the old photos on this site and relax. I have seen much in my 76 years...
"Call me a relic call me what'cha will
Say I'm old fashioned say I'm over the hill
Today's music ain't got the same soul
I like that old time rock and roll"
I love these simple street scene photos. They are visionary memories that seem more real to me than a lot of the world that we live in now right outside my widow. Hard to believe that they are that far in the past.
This thread is better than a shot of Jack for relaxing.
The bridge to cornado ?
Long Beach Blvd, 1921
Pine Ave, Long Beach, CA, 1954, someone wrote "today" on the photo, no clue what it means
Seaside Blvd, Long Beach, 1954
Pine Ave, Long Beach, 1938
Long Beach earthquake, 1933.
Long Beach earthquake, 1933
Earthquake damage, Long Beach, 1933. Oh, to have that almost-new deuce roadster, complete with rumble seat!
Balboa Inn, 1954. My brother and I got kicked out of it, blood was not sufficiently blue.
"Colorado Lagoon," Long Beach, 1937. Think that is a Studebaker coupe closest to camera, Chev sedan and a pretty new 33-34 Ford coupe.
OK, I just subscribe to it and it has some really cool shots there but, I won't give up this thread for that one. No way, owe to much to the guys that have been posting here for so long. Long live Vintage shots from days gone by!
Amazing post, cool to see something we all hear about but very few get to see such a piece of history, very cool -
OH YEAH!!!----Boy, do I remember those days!---Because of rationing meat, sugar,etc.---I had to use Karo syrup on cold cereal EVERY DAY during WWII, Never ate so much white rabbit & chicken in my life then.
Won't touch Karo syrup either!!
Republic F-84 Thunderjet
I had to look that one up, had no idea what it was!
And I bet nothing in his home town could touch it! Cool shot!
I'd like to know more about Jack Butler and where he digs up all these great old shots from.
For the racing historians, the front surfaces here seem to be covered in tape to protect it from sand blasting damage. What think? Did he try to take it back to the dealer on Monday morning "claiming" his wife didn't like the color and she wanted a different one? LOL. Gary
Once upon the time, there was a rallyteam in France with three Renault Alpines and six girls...
