I recently asked my boyhood buddy, Nelson, if he had any photos from back when, and it turns out that he did.
Probably summer 1960: we went to Camp Wildwood on Lake of Two Mountains near Montreal. I have my Kodak Starflash camera dangling around my neck. Apparently, we were taking pictures of each other, but this camera of mine was not working well, so I don't have similar shots in my album. I would take a picture, but more often than not, the lens would remain open: not good.
Also at Wildwood, Nelson is holding my camera, while I take him with his.
This was probably taken a year or two later, possibly 1961, since I (second left) seem to have grown a bit. We lived near a little airfield, and Brian (right) was a plane buff, so we spent time there every now and then. I have a similar picture with Nelson in the group instead of me. I lived just around the corner to the left of the buildings in the background. Left to right: Neil, Me, Peter, Brian.
This was probably taken by Nelson when he visited in 1963. This was out first car, a 1958 Pontiac. My mother learned to drive when we moved to a rural area outside of Toronto and a car was more or less necessary.
I must have sent this to Nelson although I can't recall seeing a copy in our archives. This is our second car, a 1965 Valiant. It looks like I am dressed for church, but the surroundings are not familiar to me.
This may have been taken by Nelson in the summer or 1963.
