I was sick a lot as a young kid (up to 14 yrs old when my bad tonsils were finally removed). I use to go thru a drawer of "old" (before my time) B&W family photos....square prints with the scalloped edges. In our house I also walked past two photos in the hallway that always attracted my attention -- Watkins 16x20 prints, one of a two-locomotive train stopped at Cape Horn, CA and the other of the Three Brothers in Yosemite Valley.

I still love the square and large contact prints!
