Photographic memorabilia from long ago

Here are a few photos from long ago (send us more).  A new photo was added in January, 2014.

Karen Aabel Vogl sent this vintage photo of (from left) Susan Krier, Charlene Mundorf and Janet Farrand standing behind Charlene's car, a Morris (!). 

 Remember these ribbons?

Here's Joe Dezso (left) and Bill Glod in the cockpit of a then-new Boeing 707 in a 1959 photograph taken in the American Airlines hangar at LAX.  Both went on to long careers in aviation:  Joe is the primary designer of the Robinson R-22 helicopter, and Bill retired as a 777 captain for American.
