I was 11 years old when I took this photo in Yellowstone National Park over 55 years ago (1954 to be exact) with a Spartus box camera which I still have. Even then signs forbade the feeding of bears, but this man obviously didn't care. At least it povided passing cars like ours with an opportunity to take a photograph.

Circa 1912-15. My mother and two of her cousins on a farm in Iowa. Scan of a glass plate negative. I love their clothing

The Battleship Oregon - Taken in Everett, Washington in April 1919. Commissioned in San Francisco in 1896, this ship, known as the "Bulldog of the Navy", later designated by the navy as Battleship No 3, was at the time the only battleship on the Pacific seaboard. At the breakout of hostilities with Spain in 1898, it made an historic voyage to the east coast arount the Cape of Magellan in record time for a ship of its size. Shortly thereafter, it participated in the Battle of Santiago in the Spanish American War. It was taken out of service in 1906, then returned to service as a training vessel in 1911. It did not see combat in WWI, but served as the flagship of the Pacific fleet. It became a museum in Oregon in 1925, but was later sold by the navy for scrap in 1942. Then, before the end of WWII, the navy reclaimed and renamed its hull for use an ammunition barge. It was sold again for scrap in 1956 and ultimately dismantled in a Japanese scrap yard. (Scanned negative)

This is another photo of my Aunt. She is in front of a twin engine WWII aircraft in Sweetwater, Texas in 1943 where she trained to become a WASP (Womens Auxillary Service Pilots) in World War II. (Scanned negative)

Taken in 1916 by my grandfather who worked for the Great Northern Railroad. He was sent west to survey damage done by a huge snowfall. This was probably taken either in Montana or Washington. (Scanned negative)

This photo, taken in 1919, is of my mother, her younger sister, four of her cousins, and old Kit, the horse on their Grandparent's farm in Galt, Iowa where they visited every summer. I have the negative for this photo. My mother is the older girl.
