Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
Blast from the Past

Description: Show us things that are 25 or more years old. Note: No people

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Check stats or review whether you've used a photo before at Bibliostats .

Most of these are over 25 years old. This shot looked better than what I originally did.

Not technically a first printing, as it's a book club edition, but it was still printed in the 70s.

This was my parent's home in New Castle, PA from back in the 1980's. Sadly, that big beautiful Maple tree was cut down two years ago.

These were the steps to the Manzanar Internment Camp hospital. The government, it it's shame, bulldozed most of the site after WWII ended, but it's still worth the stop if you're even on US395

If you've got those, you need one of these (sorta surprised one hasn't shown up yet).

Not the person, but the theater.  Built in 1947 and originally called the Culver Theater before being renamed in the actor's honor.

My Fender Bassman 100 (Model CFA7100). Purchased new 9/4/73.
Some drunk at a bar gig stumbled and fell into it and tore up the original grill cloth, so I replaced it with the Desert Camo you see here. I replaced the amp panel so it would match.
