    What caught my eye was the advertisement for the siren company. Looks like B&M made civil defense and police sirens that started in 1913 and they are still in business today. http://www.siro-driftsirens.com/news.html Wow, 100 years.

    Also, Mack Sennett did a lot of work with a model named Mabel Normand, who I think is the model in the photo. Mack did postcards with bathing beauties so this could be a bathing suit of the era.

    Same link for both but I found it in wikipedia and read the google translation. Sounds like a bloody awful movie! :D

    My Grandparents on a Zenith. No idea of the year but it was probably before my uncle was born and after WW1 so sometime around 1920.

    Imelda May, more than a pretty face, I've become a drooling fan.

    Whether you agree with it, approve of it or are flat out revolted by such behavior, the above shot defines "biker lifestyle" on several different levels!

    Wow - now I'm curious! I searched for "Koller" and couldn't find anything. Can somebody give me a hint?

    I'm usually not a fan of the stick thin blonde bimbo shots, but this one is cool. That's some fine photography skills there.

    Sent from the voices in my head and transcribed by their drinking buddy...

    Can't tell for sure if this is real or a posed retro shot but it screams to my memories of an earlier time. Everything about the shot, the bike the beer, the clothes, the girl ...right down to the dirt stains on the knees of her jeans.:wink:

    Her expression on that gorgeous fresh face, framed by her hair so obviously tangled by the wind... Damn! Where did those days go?:2cry
