Bob jumping over Adgate's house

    Newer Older

    My uncles loved playing with cameras and even had a darkroom in the basement of the house in the picture. This is my Uncle Jim, who, last April, drove me all over Manhattan in his Buick at 86 years old. He and my Aunt Delores are hardcore New Yorkers - they have lived there since after the war, minus a decade in Tel Aviv.

      A New-Yorker that drives?..

      The photograph is amazing, shame to all of us with our latest version of Photoshop. Thanks for sharing this one with us! :)

      nomadic - Yes - exactly: A New Yorker who drives! And is 84. And who honks at cabs and isn't the least bit intimidated. So awesome!

      The force is strong with this one, great photo and great background information. I'll be smiling the rest of the weekend over this. Thanks!

      This is great! What progressive photography for that time period, when usually everyone is posed and *not* smiling... Isn't it rare even to find "candid" shots of people then, let alone to use photos for illusions?! Thanks for sharing.
