The mods hard at work. Naz on the right
there was some huge deal about this pic, whether it was flipped or not; i seem to recall the shell ejector on the Winchester was the decider between Billy the Kid being left handed or right handed.
whenever i see your screen name I think of the photographer Matthew Brady
Not exactly old west but a ride on a turn of the century cable car in SF.
Scroll down to the video.
my cousin got all the photographic talent
dude puts Ansel Adams to shame even in Yosemite
straight out of Brooklyn
i think that was right before the killer quake if i remember correctly?
my dad found a big old abandoned house in the woods on a hunting trip when i was a kid. he went through the house & found pictures of the family in front of the same house when it was new. he also found a ton of civil war letters from family members.
Nice. Can ya post any of that?
This thread reminded me of some old family pictures so I scanned them and tweaked the contrast, since they are pretty faded....
I think I need to explain my lineage a little to explain the timeline: My dad was in his early 40's when I was born. His dad was in his late 50's when my dad was born. So I am at least 2 generations closer to the Civil War than most people my age (47).
My grandfather and his brothers, circa 1880. My grandfather is the first one standing from the right. Seated next to him was the "Black Sheep Of The Family", who was cropped out when the pic was framed.
This is my G-Grandfather, just out from The War Of Northern Aggression... Nice goat...
These two pics are circa 1900, with GGF being the old white bearded dude, the tiny woman seated by him my GGM, and my GF is in front of the post in the first picture. The second pic shows the house where most of them lived at one time, here in east Texas. The family relocated from Alabama after the war, along with many other families here...
I guess this isn't really "Old West", but it's "Ole South"...
Whoa! It was awesome for you to share these with the board. I really enjoyed looking at them. Even though they may be from "The South", they still have that feel to them.
The oldest photograph that I've been able to find from my family is from 1909. Its so cool that you have access to photographs from your lineage that dates from that far back. I'm impressed.
Cool thread. I've been to most of those places shown
you ain't funny latrell you never have been....
