A couple of picutes

This is my Dad. He passed in 1986.  I originally took the picture in the late 60’s with a Polaroid Swinger camera. The kind you pulled the picture out and it developed before your eyes in 60 seconds.  Then you had to use this sponge bar thing with chemicals on it to set the picture.  As evident at the very top of the picture, I didn’t do such a great job on that.  If anyone is interested, it is a 1948 John Deere Model B.

Those look very good Mark. :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing. 

Nicely done Mark and thanks for the brief history lesson too!
