    Here you go. You should be able to right click and Save Linked File. The file is approximately 25.4MB.



    Maybe we can get a thread going of people posting their favorite vintage photos. *High quality of course*

    Thats the only one I've found that has an archive of pictures. I picked up all the others at random places on the internet. Hence this thread, I would like to find more.


    Oooh very nice! :cool::)
