    Yes, I realize now that first photo is the Jan Berry Vette photo that was carried in the newspapers at the time.

    For those who may be interested, there is an informative discussion here:

    http://jananddean.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=general&action=print&thread=899

    that confirms a lot of details about it as well as what actually became of the car. Jan had been in my Fraternity at UCLA a couple of years before I was there so I didn't know him, but I used to see him studying medical books in a corner of the UCLA library once in a while.

    Hi again.. I been following along throughout, and many thanks for all your many submissions and detailed explanations.
    I'm learning new stuff everyday.
    I figured I'd submit some new ones I've collected around and about but mostly from various blogs such as Tumbler and others.
    First up - some Military Aircraft.
     
  3. Please correct if I'm wrong....wasn't it the B-58 Hustler? Delta wing, 4 engines.
    HG :cool:

    Yup. Big ass pod on the underside of the fuselage.

    The RB-50 was a revised B29.

    seems to me if the thread is based on historical photos... you are going to have to accept the full spectrum.
    The fact is that after the 1906 quake Teamsters were employed to clear the rubble while the search for survivors/victims went on. As the magnitude of the disaster grew by the hour the crews demanded a premium price to cover the cost of horses that they knew were to be worked to death.
    These are some great photos! I had never seen a pic of Treasure Island before it was filled in for the exhibition. The island was built on the rubble of what was a great city. Those horses helped to build it.

    Thanks Harms Way for saving the day. BTW, the San Fran earthquake pics were already posted back in Dec. I for one did not need to see the dead horses again!!

    Actually; the horses in that photo were killed by falling debri. they were work horses going about their daily duties of hualing milk, supplies, and people when they were killed. there is more photos to that collection showing even further devastation. very sad indeed :(
     
  26. Wow! I remember that place, my dad took me there as a kid, had such a good time it's fresh in my mind 40 years later.

    Through good times and sad, history often has a human face, and they should not be

    forgotten. These gripping photos are THANKS to About.com. A great, informative site;

    many more photos can be seen at: history1900s.about.com/od/photographs/tp/great-

    Photo by unknown photographer of the Farm Security Administration, taken mid-1935.
    The family were shot here in Bakersfield, CA, after fleeing drought-ridden Oklahoma.

    Thanks to the National Archives and Records Administration archives, a poignant photo
    of an 18-year-old mother and, apparently her brother stranded in Imperial Valley, CA,
    March 1937.

    Photo from the National Archives and Records Administration

    [​IMG]

    Thousands of families pulled up stakes and sold "lock, stock and barrel" during
    the dark days of the great depression. Here, a family offers what they could not
    carry away after their bank foreclosed on their farm, possibly due to a drought-
    caused poor crop year, 1933. Photo thanks to National Archives and Records
    Administration.
