Most were taken with a Brownie box camera.

Great pictures.

My parents had one of those cameras. Didn't it have an attachable flash bulb?

Remember the old days when there were only so many pictures in a roll of film and each used up a bulb? We only took a few pictures compared to today, and they were all treasured.

My Dad LOVED his Brownie camera.

I have a scar on one of my fingers from one of those mowers. I was fortunate enough to only cut it.

Great pictures GB!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Those are great! Thanks for sharing. I got off lucky - only a giant splinter in my finger from one of those lawnmowers. Which is probably still in my dad's workshop. :roll:

:lol: I'm disappointed......no one noticed the double entendre in the title and action in the 'big bore rifle' picture...
