Car Trailer

Mom is looking at the scenery with binoculars and the little girl waves to daddy who’s taking the picture. They are very stylish people traveling in a two-tone turquoise and white 1956 Plymouth Belvedere and a pink and white Dalton Trailer.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

California Pottery

A deadpan doll anchored by twisted crepe paper is the centerpiece of a little West Covina girl's birthday party table. The doll has a yarn 'fro. The little girl wears Bettie Page bangs and a bow on top of her head. Cupcakes, each with a single candle, are served. A yellow chrome dinette set and California Pottery, displayed in a classic mid-century modern china cabinet, make a colorful and stylish backdrop. The dishes were manufactured by Metlox and Free Form is the name of the spectacular futuristic pattern.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

1957 Ford station wagon

This is a great slide, one of the most colorful station wagon shots I’ve ever run across. The gas station attendant checking under the hood while he’s fillin’ it up with Ethyl is the perfect finishing touch. The location wasn’t marked on the slide and I don’t recognize it so I just call it Somewhere, USA - hope that’s OK. The image is a bit soft. I never say out-of-focus, I call it dream focus or heavenly focus. Please do keep in mind this is amateur photography.

Islands Restaurant

On the oh-so-rare occasion I am lucky enough to run by chance across a slide of a fifties-era Polynesian Restaurant, my heart skips a beat and I shed a tear of genuine joy! So rest assured when this slide of The Islands came into focus through my lupe it was a happy day! It was then an extra happy occasion when I ran across an old phone book ad from the Islands Restaurant that provided the following info on the place.
