I am very fortunate to have access to a large collection of old time slides. Some years ago, my wife inherited the collection from the estate of Joseph LaClair.
Joe and his wife Aggie lived in Altoona in a house located behind my wife’s grand parents. While they were not truly related, my wife and her siblings spent a great deal of time with them. They went on vacations to the shore together and shared trips to the cottage. Joe and Aggie came to treat my wife, her sister and brother as their own grandchildren.
There are hundreds if not thousands of old time slides in the collection. I have not had an opportunity to view all of them yet, but I have seen some that were taken at the cottage. Here are a few from the early 1970’s.
