Default Hi, new to the board, here is my contribution.

My grandfather, 85 years old found some old film and slides from the 40's and 50's he sent them to me. He cried when he saw these pictures. They have never been seen by him. My mother even got to see a picture of herself as a baby. The photos were taken in Toronto Canada and the color slides were on Kodachrome, the b&w shots were from an old leica. The film was in old metal canisters. The black and whites lost a lot of the quality a had to do a ton of photoshop work to make some of them even viewable. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy my first post.

Regards,

Matt

Matt, they are brilliant. Such simple 'snaps' have much greater power when viewed over time. Thanks for sharing.

Matt, fantastic to see.* (Almost thought I recognized the area too!)* I was born and brought up in Willowdale, (Lansing in the 40's).

Thanks for the glimpse into the past via that link.* Love them!

This photo shows my great grand parents (at a wedding?) at the start of the century. It also shows my great grand father's brother and his wife (you can easily guess who the brothers are). The only other person my grand parents recognised is the tall girl in the middle second rank who was a cousin of my great grand father. Nobody know who the other people are.

This photo is of my Grandad and his brother taken in 1928.* My Grandad was a beekeeper in Aberdeen, Scotland and came to Canada and carried on this hobby.* My father took it over from him when Grandad grew too old and my late husband and I took it over from my Dad.* Here is Grandad sitting at the Smithy door putting together bee frames.
