Treasure Chest Thursday - Outside Dad's Shop

Outside Dad's Shop

This is a Treasure on several levels. First, it is a scan of a 35 mm camera slide photo. I did the scan a few years ago, luckily, because many of these slides from the 1950 are now seriously deteriorating - and we cannot predict which ones will soon and which ones later.

This is one of my few photos of my Dad, Pete, [more properly Delbert Leverne Smith, but always known as Pete] in his work environment. He was a FARMER, but here he is outside his shop with the welder and all of this farm implement equipment tools. With him are my next three younger brothers [fifth not yet born, it appears, so this is about 1955]. Tom, or T.K. later, on the left on the tricycle. Jim, with his bicycle, in the middle, and little Barry, perhaps 2 years old. He just retired as a college professor!

What fun to see again!

Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. Great picture. I too scanned many slides in the last 10 years. It's great to have them more available!
