The Way We Were Wednesday - 1970's

This was taken in the mid 1970's.  The camera is either a Cannon Ftb, or a Konica T3.  I bought my first Cannon F-1 in 1976 when I was attending political rallies leading up to the election of Jimmy Carter.  The F-1 had an all black body. 
The pick-up truck was a red Ford, that my middle brother bought after a year recovering from a horrific car accident in Florida.  

Can you date photos based on the camera, cars, or what you were wearing? 


  1. Oh yes...and then there's the. "ong, I wore that?"

  2. most times yes; hair, clothes, cars give away the age of something.

  3. Cameras and cars mean nothing to me, but clothes can clue me in. Also, lack of grey in hair and no wrinkles can be good clues.

  4. Sort of if they're mine. I know what cars we owned when, but not cars in general. Cameras, no. Clothes, yeah.
