C. Stirling Bartholomew & Ed Sherman 1972

C. Stirling Bartholomew is seen here looking out the window while his friend and colleague Ed Sherman studies. Photograph was taken at the Center (a.k.a Grapevine) where I was employed for two years after college.

The second photo was a snap shot taken in the summer of 1970 at the rummage sale which Dorothy Hurley and her team put on to help fund center. The house in the background was a small store which sold quality used items with the same purpose. CSB is in the foreground with the flag. The irony of the flag might escape some of the gen-x people. CSB and David Hastings were both conscientious objectors working off our two years of alternate service.

More like staring out the window! Is that a reel to reel tape player/recorder on the small table behind you? Wow… flashback time! 1972 was a good year for me… thanks, ron

Yes one of several reel to reel recorders we had kicking around as I have noted else where most of the staff were musicians. The folks on what was called by some "the team" were very much into multi media.

Can you recall what book is in front of you? This is a 'classic' photo.

G'day T.B.,

I think it was one of the Time/Life library of photography books. I wasn't reading it I was taking the photograph for a brochure we were doing on the Center. I have a more humorous photo of me at one of our rummage sales. I will post it in the next day or so.
