Found Photo Friday: Out With The Old…In With the New

Color Transparency

Found Photo Friday finally returns with one of my favorite series of photos.

These two images were taken on Thornwood Avenue in Wilmette, Illinois. You can see the houses across the street on Google Street View.

The first photo, taken in the Fall of 1964, shows a woman and her daughter standing in drab weather, next to the family’s old, rusted 1955 Cadillac.

The second photo is much sunnier. Taken in the Spring of 1965, the woman is adorned with spring colors and gets a chance to show her new pride and joy, a 1965 Pontiac.

The Exciting World of Dinosaurs at Sinclair Dinoland – New York World’s Fair 1964-65

Cookbooks, Pamphlets, Brochures, World's Fairs

Sinclair Dinoland was an exhibit at the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. Sinclair had used a brontosaurus as their mascot for years so it made perfect sense for them to have an exhibit featuring “LIFE-SIZE” dinosaurs.

This particular item is a 16 page brochure with background on Sinclair and the dinosaurs that roamed the World’s Fair exhibit. You will learn all about dinosaurs and why Sinclair quality oil is the best.
