Blast from the Past

Sometimes you run across a family photo that makes you wish you knew your parents when they were young. This is also one of the only two photos I have of my grandfather.

They’re sitting in a hotrod my father build from scratch in 1954.

My mother and grandfather in a homemade flathead Ford powered hotrod.

One annoying thing about scanning old photos, is that they’re never square to the paper. Here I chose to have the image square even though the paper edges would be crooked. I also left the ragged edge because it suits the nature of the photo.
