    It looks similar to the critter Ford used in their 1950 ford logo.jpg emblem/logo in the early to mid `50s

    Those Pasadena photos are tricky. When you use the usual way, by copying image location and pasting, this is the result:
    [​IMG]
    It cuts off the right side of the image. Best way to do it is to hit the F11 key to go full screen and adjust the slider until the image is the size you want, then hit "Prt Scr" so you get a nice big image like this (1280x720p.):

    This format is used by many online archives. If you're lucky, the image was saved as a hi-res scan, and you can zoom in for a nice detail shot such as this:
    [​IMG]
    Save it to whichever photo program you have, crop and adjust brightness and contrast as needed, then post it on your favorite hosting site, and here you go:

    I've done it with hundreds of photos I've posted here and it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
