Thanks for sharing your family pix, a welcome change to the constant reposts of the same pix seen so often.
I think I know what you mean, its like watching the same commercial over & over again. I get it!
PS your welcome for the change in scenery.
Gary, I'm sure you'll agree.
All us greybeards should feel fortunate (I do) that we can actually look at these old photos and remember the good old days portrayed here, well at least some of them.
Not belittling anybody here but those a couple generations younger than us can't feel the nostalgia, sure they might think the photos are cool and all, but they just can't feel it.
I think I must have been six or seven when my older brother got a 54 Chevy wagon (used) for his first family car after he became a father, IIRC it was dark/light green two tone.
I don't recall going camping with it but I do remember riding in the back of that cavernous thing.
^^^^ l'd like to see the other side of this "James" ^^^^
Odd two-tone on that 56, i remember that most of them had the same color top and bottom
Victoria's Memorial Arena under construction 1947 and finished early 50's.
