    These and some others of his photos are too new for the HAMB and should be deleted.
     
  10. Me too, but the State of Oregon Archives called it traffic survey - so who's to say?

  13. I found only one with a car in it. Either they're pre-1900 or brand new. Pinterest may have some interior hotel views from way back.

    Man, talk about the Wild West, Imnaha Ore. (far eastern) is still kinda like this shot, it's in the middle of nowhere. We were there many years ago during a trip to Willowa Lake. Took quite a long and scary drive along the Snake river and Imnaha creek to get there, had lunch in one of those buildings IIRC. There is a "rattlesnake roundup" there, many scary photos while eating a hamburger, pretty sure it was hamburger.

  15. Art Lacey wasn't the only gas station guy with a bomber!
    Hundreds of Avro Lancasters were in transit across Canada at the end of the war, most stayed there, were scrapped and.........
    Charlie saw his new Lancaster as a potential magnet to draw customers to his service station on Highway #2, about one mile south of Red Deer. His daughter, Lois Gilmour recalled, “Dad was always full of ideas that were different. He could fix or build almost anything, really a great inventor of machinery, etc., and loved cars and planes. I’m sure people around here wondered about him—but they were in awe when he set his plan in motion.” Mr. Parker began to tow his new bomber from the Penhold base on country roads and across farm fields. For a time it was bogged down in wet ground but finally, after the ground froze, it completed its trip to Charlie’s gas station that he named “Bomber Service.”

    The Calgary Herald reported that, “When the engines were started, early morning motorists who probably had no thought that the machine would ever fly again, stopped to confirm their disbelieving eyes. Nearly everyone who went by slowed their cars to a crawl as they watched the propellers cutting through the air.”

    But a happy ending to the saga of KB885 was not to be. As the big moment arrived in January 1957, pilot-mechanic E. Robinson taxied the Lancaster through the snow to her new runway. Just before take-off, hydraulic problems developed and, while Robinson worked on the hydraulic system, a fire ignited in the interior of the nose section. Before it was extinguished the complete nose section burned off and fell to the snow. The once proud bomber was towed back to the service station and later sold for scrap.

  17. From Tacoma Public Library: "Esther Williams Girls"
    Date: 07-25-1959
    Ernie Grindley, advertising manager for Washington Sports Shop, stages publicity for the store by bringing the Esther Williams Girls to Tacoma. In addition to showing-off their swimsuits, the women are showcasing foreign automobiles--a Jaguar roadster, Austin-Healeys and MGs. The Washington Sports Shop had recently been selected as the exclusive Tacoma dealer of the Esther Williams Living Pool.

    Hello,
    Back in 1961-62, my friend drove a Ford Econoline window van. He always needed money, so he joined this weird company group that became a rolling advertisement for this funny product. He was proud of the fact that he could still use his van to go surfing and on those long surf trips. But, he was somehow making money while using his Ford Econoline van. How? Everywhere he used to stop to go surfing, he brought out a display of his product. It was toilet paper. He had a van full of toilet paper in rolls. But, he was not just a toilet paper roll salesman, though. He was selling an oil filter system guaranteed to keep your oil clean and free from sediments. It was offered as a money back deal. Now, all these years later, we all laugh at a van full of toilet paper. But, no one we knew ever bought a system from him. In hindsight, he did always have a lot of spending money on those long surf trips to the secret surf spots. Did the toilet paper filter work?

    Thanks,
    Jnaki
