    One or two of them look blatantly staged and a bit corny, but by and large they're excellent.

    Thanks for an interesting series, and a look into the past.

    I reckon they all must have been, considering I think the film has an ISO of 10.

    The colours and detail are really fantastic for the era.
    I bet colour film was hard to come by back then too.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    "Thousands of North American Aviation employees at Inglewood, California, look skyward as the bomber and fighter planes they helped build perform overhead during a lunch period air show..."
    I quite like this. Not one of them is looking skyward.
