    I love that shot of the Terminal Tower – what a find. I never get tired of looking at photos of Cleveland in the 40s and 50s – happier times there, I think.

    #1) Who wants to go first?
    #2) Did you bring the cinder blocks and rope?
    #3) Daddy, we own the tall one?
    #4) Why did we park so far away?
    #5) Is somebody baking brownies?
    #6) Did they just see me put the dead hooker in the trunk?
    #7) Another brick in the wall…
    #8) Uh, when are they going to plow the runway?

    It’s like they’re crystal clear and hazy all at once.

    That’s the beauty of film!

    I just love that Cary Grant lookalike guy. He’s a character.

    I also love the way water looks on film. This is a great series.

    I like that photographs. I’m going to take some shots on an old kodacolor 110 film. Can’t wait to see the results.

    That is totally Cary Grant’s doppelganger. He’s even got the ladies swarming around him appropriately. :)

    #2 might as well be a postcard;

    “Wishin’ I Was Fishin'” or maybe…

    “A Bad Day of Fishing is Still Better Than a Good Day at the Office!”

    Love these. I hope there’s a Part IV.

    Pretty sure that’s Cleveland Heights High School in that one photo with the bleachers. Also, I worked in Terminal Tower a couple of jobs ago, and my office was on that side of the building, 31st floor where the side of the building becomes recessed behind those little columns. Great view from all sides, to be sure.

    Great photos.

    Damn I need a vacation.

    Paul Simon was right.

    I really love these Kodachrome photos – great work – keep them coming please!

    Thought you might enjoy this…

    I love the shots, especially the fisherman in the second photo. Looks straight out of Andy Griffith! Makes me wonder if it’s posed or if his fishing partner caught him in a moment of dozing.

    And might I say I would do anything to have one of the two cars parked on the street outside the school!

    Good picks of pics.

    Brilliant shots! That first one really gets me. The vividness and life effusing from it is almost overwhelming.

    Manufacturers of today’s photography equipment have seemed to forget that photos can still be taken of real people, these pictures hearken back to the time when light and composition were more important than ISO or photoshop.

    mistermidwesterner hit it square on. He looks like he crashed a tupperware party and all the women said, “What Tupperware?”

    Nice photos — the fisherman’s nap actually stands out as a good composition.

    I’m curious about your decision to stamp this set with ACL’s mark. I’m just wondering aloud, hoping for your comment or someone else’s contribution, not saying you’re right or wrong for putting it there. I understand the desire to protect one’s intellectual property, but seeing the ACL stamp there makes me cringe a little. For me, it transforms the shots from a piece of history to a somewhat commercial appropriation of the past.
