12/25/14 Check out the sweet pile of Christmas toys these girls scored in the 1970s - a yellow bicycle with flowered banana seat, Monopoly, Play-Doh Funny Pumper, Winnie the Pooh, Chinese & Regular Checkers, Vanity Toy Cosmetics, Porcelain Toy Tea Set, Play Nurse Kit, Operation, The Partridge Family Sound Magazine, Nurse Play Set, Sears Red Wagon, Super Poster Kit, Dolls & Deluxe Lite Brite. from the Misc./Unusual/People/Things page.

12/23/14 Got the first 3 lots up on the Dave E. Meyer Family album. This is going to be a good one.

12/22/14 Look at these pictures of the Weeki Wachee Springs underwater mermaid show in 1964 from the Vacationing Family 1961-1965 collection.

Replaced some missing images (including unspectacular shots of the Salton Sea resort on the William G. Cox page.

Starting on the Dave E. Meyer Family slides this week.

12/21/14 Troop 333 Webster, NY Boy Scout lot is finished!

12/20/14 A few nice shots of the touristy part of Central City, Colorado in 1964 from the Vacationing Family 1961-1965 page.

12/19/14 Yes Sir or Madam, here is a shot of the Malaga Motel and Apartments in 1965 from the Vacationing Family 1961-1965 family album. I should have this complete collection scanned and posted this weekend.

12/18/14 Disneyland in 1964 from the Vacationing Family 1961-1965 collection of slides.

12/15/14 Putting off working on the Boy Scout lot again and starting on this collection this week.

12/13/14 Children in Halloween costumes in1958. From the Roger Verseput, III photo album.

12/12/14 Boy fishing with a Miller beer perched on his leg. From the just-completed Edgerton, Minnesota slide collection.

12/11/14 Some neato Christmas pictures of Horikawa's Attacking Martian Robot in the Edgerton, Minnesota family album.

12/10/14 Surpassed 1,000 lots of slides available for sale with plenty still to post.

Added several more 1970s lots to the Edgerton, Minnesota family lot. Includes this 1971 picture of Paul Bunyan and Babe statue in Bemidji, Minnesota and another classic model train running around the Christmas tree picture.

12/09/14 Posted fun batch of holiday and vacation photos from the De Kam family in the 1960s.

I'm continually amazed that these beautiful collections of slides escape the families clutches. I know the typical scenario is that whoever ended up with them dies at some point and then everything gets unloaded at an estate sale because all of the family members live in other cities. There has been more than one occasion when I found the photographer's online obituary and discovered that he/she died within a month or two of the slides finding their way to me. I obviously love going through old slides and learning about the family but it is always a little bittersweet when I think about the conditions that lead to them going from treasured memories to garage sale items.

12/08/14 Identified my mystery family! Faith is Faith De Kam, married to Wayne De Kam, son of Helena Pearl Tinklenberg and Nelvin P. De Kam from Minnesota. Helena died on November 14, 2011. Nelvin died on August 7, 1983. Thank you to for helping with this one.

Also found this, from 2003: Faith De Kam is a mentor, small group ministry leader and substitute teacher. She is involved in their family business, her church and community. She loves the Lord and marvels at how He works in her life. Cautiously, she says she aspires to writing something profound and having a hole-in-one. Faith and her husband Wayne live in Edgerton, Minnesota and spend the winters in Palm Springs, California. They have two sons and two daughters.

It appears that Wayne turned operations (possibly after having the business handed down to him at some point) of De Kam Seed & Fertilizer over to his son Darrin De Kam.

Will update their page later this morning.

Added this series of slides featuring Faith posing in a pink bathing suit in the late 1950s/early 1960s. From the De Kam family lot.

12/07/14 Starting on this collection of slides from the De Kam family instead of the Boy Scouts lot. Should have this one finished this month.

12/06/14 35 slides taken at the 1982 Worlds Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee. Sample from the John Davey photo album.

12/05/14 I love this 1957 living room scene. More pictures from the Montgomery and Dunham family (Nancy, Larry, Dixie & Lee) here.

12/04/14 You might enjoy this collection of pictures taken in Vietnam in 1970-1971, this series from Big Red One's camp at Lai Khe in 1969 or this set of slides from Saigon in 1964-1966.

12/03/14 A couple on what I think is a Polaris Sno Traveler snowmobile in 1964. This lot is in the Robert Cobb photo album.

12/02/14 An adult Christmas party that includes the people playing the toothpick and Lifesaver game in 1967. From the William Cox slides page.

12/01/14 I have about 800 misc slides to scan and post, most of them singles or small lots, and then I'll start on the large Boy Scout slides.

Finished scanning and posting the slides from the the St. Louis Family. Dig, if you will, this shot of the San Francisco Orpheum Theatre marquee (Doctor Zhivago) and the Civic Center Pharmacy right around the corner.

11/30/14 Some interesting Missouri and Kansas city views/street scenes in this lot from the St. Louis Family page.

11/29/14 Put up this 300 slide lot, mostly documenting a Florida vacation in the early 1980s from the St. Louis Family slide collection.

11/28/14 Look at this wonderful picture from 1958 of a family gathered around a table, drinking and playing cards from the St. Louis Family album.

11/27/14 I am thankful that I finally finished scanning and posting the Dean Bower lot of slides! That was a 2,500 slide back breaker but she's done and up for you to root around in. Starting on the St. Louis Family album.

11/26/14 Put up several scouting event slides up from the Dean Bower slides. Assuming that these are from Troop 25 but could be wrong. Scouts names include Ron Holtz, Joe Custin, Carl Dow, Tom English, Leonard Early, Charles Alexander, Ricky Szejva/Ricky Szejua and Mike Burns.

11/25/14 Got the 400 slide lot up from the Dean Bower collection. If you or your parents went to Addison Trail High School in the 1980s you'll want to go poke around in this lot as it made up mostly of pictures of students from the drama/theater department. Still have a few 70s rolls to go before I'm done with the whole album. Should finish this tomorrow.

From the Midwestern Family slide lot: 21 pictures of the Mills Brothers Circus in town in the late 1950s. Includes many images of the performers.

11/24/14 Finally got the Midwestern Family photo album up. The lot is made up of about 350 slides, most of them red bordered Kodachromes from the late 1950s.

Still need to finish up the Dean Bower slide lot. This includes a half dozen rolls of film (slides) from the 1970s. Will probably compile the balance of 1980s and 1990s slides into one large lot and then move on to a new family.

Pictures of vintage Christmas decorations mixed with ainimal heads and some nature pictures. Check out Michael Jackson on the TV. This lot and thousands of other slides in the the William G. Cox album.

11/23/14 I love pictures of old motel signage and I often find that in a lot of vintage family vacation slides somebody will have taken a picture of their motel's neon sign. The Jack Weikel family album includes a nice shot of one of the Gate-way Motel signs that dotted the United States in 1970. This collection also includes pictures from a trip to Europe in 1973 and Disneyland in 1974

11/22/14 128 pictures, mostly of a Michigan couple's vacations in Honolulu and at Tom Walker's Grist Mill in Fenton, MI in 1976. Taken from the Bonnie and Brian slide album.

11/21/14 Christmas decorations in the living room in 1969. Taken from the Marvin Eichenlaub slides page.

11/20/14 Another vintage 35mm slide documenting the popularity of electric train sets as Christmas presents from the Bonnie & Brian family album.

11/19/14 33 slides taken of the Charles & Diana royal wedding and proceding procession in 1981 in the C.D. Campbell family slide collection.

11/18/14 Four original and unpublished slides of the Richard Nixon motorcade in Tulsa 1960 in the Stanton Family photo album.

11/17/14 Pictures of go-kart racing at Boschertown Grand Prix in 1984 in the Ralph P. Anderson family album.

11/16/14 No electric train for Christmas? How about a new BB gun? From the Robert Brannon Family collection of slides.

11/15/14 From the 1950s American Family lot: How many kids are going to get electric train sets for Christmas in 2014?

11/14/14 Got the Pennsylvania Amusement Parks lot scanned and posted. This small lot is from a family's visit to Dutch Wonderland, Memorytown, The Pennsylvania Dutch Farm, the Bavarian Barrel House and the Thornhurst Picnic Area in 1974.

Dig if you will this 1970 Thanksgiving meal (electric knife for turky carving!) from the William G. Cox family.

11/13/14 Check out this lot of 38 family slides from a Cobb family 1966 holiday at Lake Thompson in Nova Scotia, Canada. There are some good pictures of the Laurel Lea Motor Lodge and Restaurant on Route 302 which was run by Mike Shulack.

11/12/14 There is a tendency for visitors to overlook the Family Photo Albums section, following the individual categories on the top of the page instead. The Family Photo Albums pages are chronologically sorted slides from a single family's history. The lot is divided by roll of film rather than divided up into categories so there is a lot of variety on one page. THESE are the pages to paw through while running out the clock at work.

Two more lots in the queue for when I finish posting the Bower family slides:

1) A nice stack of slides depicting a family's 1974 visit to the Pennsylvania Dutch Dairy Farm, Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park and Thornhurst Picnic Area.

2) A few hundred (mostly red border/red frame Kodak) slides of a family possibly located in IL. There are a lot of shots of the Mills Circus and a few motels from the late 1950s, early 1960s.

11/11/14 Added more pictures of the Boy Scout Troop 25 in Normal, IL from 1972.

I finally figured out the reason for the pictures of movie stills. They must have been for Dean's drama/theatre classes.

11/10/14 Posting a big pile from the Dale N. Bower lot of slides today. Subjects include

-Addison Trail High School plays, homecoming and gymnastic events in the early 1980s
-Boy Scouts trip at Hardwood Lake in Ogemaw County, Michigan in 1975
-a trip to Miami in 1972
-Alton Little Theater and Alton High School plays in 1972
(Actors/students/stage crew members pictured in the Alton Little Theater and Alton High School lot include Rick Alis, Nan Paeltz, Sue Bonafede, Janet Catt, Peggy, Sue Berg, Tim Ferrell, Chris Hellrung, Dorothy Colonius, Luella Heil, Thea Takinson, Gary Phelps, Mal Graham, Gene Bennett, Jerry Trotter or Jerry Trattler, Jim Baerkle, Ralph Kamlos, Harry Presley, Winnie Biley, Helen Miller, Bud Pribish, Roger Weisman, Bill Grant, Delmas Jouett, Theo Takinson and more.)

Hey, did I ever mention that vintage family slides make great Christmas presents? I mean, they probably don't unless you are one of those imaginative gift-giving rebels who think outside of the pre-fabricated gift box. Is that you?

11/09/14 I'm starting to make real progress on the amazing Dale N. Bower lot. I hope to have this completely scanned and posted in a couple of weeks.

11/08/14 Picked up another St. Louis family lot of about 1,000 slides. Still have the Boy Scouts of America - Troop 333 - Webster, NY lot and several 100-500 slide lots to post over the next few months.

11/07/14 Decided to add a blog so that you know what's been added to the site.
