Viewing Record 92 of 102 artist: Shay, Arthur


Trying out my new 300mm Nikon telephoto from an upstairs window, I was able to sight energetic Florence giving Harmon and Dick their first sled ride around Stockton Avenue. I occasionally used those corn fields in the background to take off and land in the helicopters I rented for aerial pictures. I remember the hourly rate in those days: $75!
