Inspired by the Kodachrome thread...Old family Photos...

I'll start... Here's a shot taken with my father and 3 brothers. I'm the oldest, tallest one.

Not a family photo, but from one of my Grandfather's Kodachromes, the U.S. Steel exhibit at the 1939 World's Fair in New York. To the left is the Life Saver's candy parachute tower. :)

Another from the 1939 New York World's Fair. My Grandfather must have set up a time exposure to capture this, with an impressive result given Kodachrome's ASA of 10 at the time and 35mm camera technology. We're looking at the back of a statue of George Washington, the Trylon and the lighted Perisphere.

Here's my dad sitting on my new H-D Sportster on a Saturday morning in 1991 just before I took him on his first ride on a motorcycle. He was born in the Balkans in 1903, the same year that Harley-Davidson was founded. After the ride, he allowed that it was a much smoother mode of transport than the mules he rode as a boy.
