Photo of the Week
April 7, 2019
We return to the Thatcher Ferry with this week's photos sent in by CZImages contributor Marvin Hughey. When Marvin saw the photo a couple of weeks ago, he dug out these two photos that his father took back in 1954. Marvin writes:
reference of your photo of the week, March 17, 2019. as usual
this woke up some great memories. Attached are two old
black-and-white photos that my father took on the ferry while taking
me to my weekly Saturday morning gun class at the Balboa Gun
Club. Approximately date January or February 1954 with his
old Argus C3 camera and not of the best quality just before he
got his new one and all his later photo were color slides. Sorry
I didn't send them sooner had a hard time locating them. I
think the photos are some what unusual since they then were from
the ferry. Loved those trips to the gun club and still have my
old .22 target rifle, still shoot it every now and then.
for the memories. Keep up the great work."
The photo below is a bit rough, but appears to be a quick snap photo showing some of the passengers on the ferry. Ancon Hill is seen in the distance.
Thank you Marvin for sharing these wonderful captures in time.
