The Trunk of Photos

I have this trunk. It’s filed with negatives.

My father’s photos. Mostly B&W, i’ve been meaning to scan them, get them archived and published in some manor. Decided to start this site in part as an excuse for that. Get things rolling.

The Binders of negatives in the trunk are somewhat in order, so I’m going to go through them in sequence. This is the first page from the binder labeled 1969 GEN. This post is for the sheet marked 02/01. There is a contact sheet as well for most pages, so I’m including that as well. Mostly I’ve just scanned them, and done nothing else. Except for the one portrait of Lionel. At a later time i’ll be cleaning up some images, but for now these posts will mostly be just big dumps of scans.

    Hello Max,

    I lived at Montrose when Lionel and Arana were there.
    I have a few prints of photo’s I know he took.(maybe 10)
    I think you would have the negs., but the images might help with identification.
    Arna thought you might be interested. They relate to Rochdale.
    Let me know and I’ll send them along

    Un till a year ago I didn’t know what happened to your father. I can’t say we were the best of friends but we ran into each other very regularly. It’s nice to see pictures of common friend ie Jay Boldizare his first wife Linda Sloboda AKA Tracey. Bob Block. Idon’t remember if I ever let him take stills of me. But he did a short film (I use the term With tounge in cheek). I know I was in it and it had a production budget of about $2.46 , it was called Birth of the Bicycle Bandits. If you ever run into anything like this please let me know.
