Snapshot collecting in Berkeley CA

January 27, 2012











We have run this photo before but we are rerunning it so that we can put this copy into the new Smirking Chimp column on Friday morning.

The same column will run but with different accompanying photos in the blog section of Bartcop and in Op Ed News.

All these should be posted by 11 a.m. PST Friday Jan. 27, 2012

Snapshot collecting will be one of the many topics in this one column

Remember rumble seats?

We love the car with a rumble seat in the line of cars shown in this old snapshot.

Best working man’s car ever!

January 15, 2011

As part of our new snapshot collecting fact finding process, we acquired one that includes this portion that shows a 36 Ford Sedan parked next to a 40 Ford convertable. 

To our way of thinking, the 1940 Ford Convertible was the best working man’s priced production car ever made.

Other cars (such as a Cobra) make for a more exotic collector’s prize, but for a mass produced affordable car, we have always put the 40 Fords Deluxe convetable and Coupe, at the top of the list.

Now, back to reality . . .

History club trip on October 9, 1936

January 15, 2011

As part of our new snapshot project, we acquired this 8X10 print of the Waukegan Township High School History Club’s historic trip on October 9, 1936.  There is no indication if the club went somewhere on the DC-3 or if their history trip was just to an airport to see it.

Isn’t it doubtful that that many folks could fit into a DC-3?

We are not sure where we are going with our snapshot collecting project but, so far, it has been fun finding items such as this.

If anyone knows about this WTHS History Club trip please add your information in the comments section.  Thanks!

We don’t know where this photo was taken but writing on the print indicates it was taken on Nov. 26, 1926.

If you know where this is please share that info in the comments section.
