Today would be my parent wedding anniversary. So I started looking at more pictures and I finished scanning all their albums up to when I started taking slides. I know there are more pictures in other boxes, studio portraits and other lose odds and ends. I found more pictures for 1952-1966, and I remember that somewhere there is another album of pictures I took.

OK. I think I have found the last of pictures from 1952-1966.

This is part of my web site that I have been postponing for a very long time. The task of reviewing several thousand old photographs and slides is daunting. Making the dreaded decision about purging many images is going to be painful, but it must be done, because there is a limit to how many old pictures anyone will want to look at.
I started scanning some pictures over a year ago and put them up on Flickr. As I start the process of putting these images on my web site, I'm still not certain of the best way to organize and present them, so for now I'll continue with the logic that made sense then, knowing that it will be extremely difficult to restructure the web site later... so I guess I'm done thinking about the "best way" and I'll just start doing it!
What I decided was the break up the pictures by era and subject. This was based on what I could easily know about most of the old pictures just by looking at them. The classifications (and links) go like this:
As the pages are completed the "Name" column will become links you can click on. "What's New" shows when a section was updated and with what.
