You know the drill... Sunday is the day I generally share scans of slides that are not ready for the big leagues (and never will be).
This one is a heartbreaker, because it would have been an exceptional shot, IF it wasn't horribly damaged (by moisture or mold or poltergeists). Maybe it is "Saint Elmo's Fire" (an electrical phenomenon that was considered to be a good omen by sailors)?
In spite of the damage, it's still kind of a neat shot of the Skyway, and especially of Snow Hill during the brief time that people were encouraged to climb that big pile of dirt - which is all it was, let's face it.
This next one is from 1956, and had faded to a reddish purple, and had a large scratch in the emulsion (up there by the observation tower). Again, this is a shame, because it is a pretty nice photograph, otherwise.
Which palm is the Domiguez Palm? Is it the one about 1/3 from the left edge?
