I dream of finding a lot of 50's Southern California slides like the Beard Family collection!

Thank you!

I wish I could go back and stay at the Newporter Inn back in '64...

The Beard family photos have been very interesting...Makes you want to know more about them. Kind of different to view the history of a group of folks through their lost/abandoned photo archive.

Please post more if you have them.
