August 14, 2014

Happy #TBT. Here’s the next in this series [there will be a few!] covering the film Lionel shot at the The Toronto Pop Festival in 1969! This one has shots of a young looking Tiny Tim, some members of the Ronnie Hawkins band, playing while a 17-year-old Jeanne Beker dances her hart out in a yellow bikini top. That made the […]

Chuck Berry @ Varsity Stadium in 1969

August 7, 2014

Happy late Throwback Thursday! I decided a while ago I would make this the standard posting day for the site here. Seemed fitting. I’ve got a few rolls from this show, though not all of them that Lionel took I think? We’ll see. This first scanned, is #5 of indeterminate. These are pretty much raw […]

Jimi Hendrix Experience @ Maple Leaf Gardens Pt 2

November 30, 2011

The second roll of photos of a historic Jimi Hendrix show, the night of May 3, 1969 at Maple Leaf Gardens. There’s been a fair bit of interest in prints of some kind, I’m working on a couple of solutions, and should have something to present with the 3rd Roll of film from the show. For a bit […]

May 21, 2011

A few shots of the buildings around the Berkeley street loft, a very lovely guest reeding in it, a tough looking lady in leather, and lots of photos from a screening of The good the bad and the ulgly. I have photos like that, from films on TV usually, stills i took of monies i […]

Here’s a three rolls of film from what looks like sometime in the summer. Scenes from around Toronto. People hanging out in the Beaches. The Island faeries and on the island with a dog.

Ravi Shankar & a show at The Riverboat

April 2, 2011

So for the 20th post on the site i’m skipping ahead a few sheets to a treat. This was probably one of Lionel’s first live show shoots. I’ve some later one’s that came out a bit better. Not sure if this is the same place, or day. One set is a trio i can’t place [hints […]

Landscapes and the ladies of Berkeley street

March 27, 2011

Somewhere by the side of the road in southern Ontario Lionel and Arna pulled over and took these photos. The one of Arna in profile standing in a slight wind is really striking. Some really nice shots of the landscape too, I love the texture of the grass. I’ll have to ask if the 1952 Pontiac was […]

Summer in the city

March 15, 2011

Couple of rolls of photos of what i think is mostly Toronto in the summer. I have this lens still, along with a 28 wide angle for my Nikon F. It’s a bit crappy now though. Some of the few bits of camera equipment I’ve been able to hang on to. I was supposed to get it all, but an older relative claimed to want […]

The streets and swimming in the Quarry

March 7, 2011

Not really sure if it is a quarry, looks like one. Ian Arna and Lionel going for a dip somewhere. Another shot of Arna and Lionel in happier times together. One of the nicest things about going through these old shots is finding those. I wonder who’s taking them when he’s in the frame. Ian some of the time i […]

Streets and People

March 6, 2011

This is a big interesting set. I think it’s all one roll, hard to be sure. It’s mostly of what i think is the streets of Downtown Toronto. Will try to find out and ad that info here when i do. But the really interesting thing about these shots are the people.

Assorted old prints from the Trunk

March 3, 2011

Along with all the negatives, there are a few prints printed by Lionel i assume, in some cases mounted on boards. Scanned them tonight, an interesting selections of images. Some of the prints were in rough shape. cleaned up a few things but mostly left them as is. I’m using these as a rough rule of thumb […]

Some more shots of Arna, kittens, and folks at Berkeley street, also looks like a gimps at the garage on the first floor. Some photos of a fair, people playing bingo. The CNE maybe?

Over a truck and billboard painting factory on Berkeley Street

February 22, 2011

This is a nice set. My mother is in some of them, getting dressed in the first place she and Lionel lived in together. She was an art student at OCA and an artists model. I have a great story to post later about how they met… “This is before Rochdale, before you! The first place we lived […]

More negatives from the Trunk

February 22, 2011

Scanned another sheet tonight. These were it seems from the same set as the last, or are just unmarked. I’ve called them 02-01B for now. They are from 1969 as well. Looks like he was a little sloppy rinsing his negatives early on, there’s some streaking from developer left on them when they were hung to dry. I recognize some of […]

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 […]
