THE WAY WE WERE

In 1976, I had been in this fine hobby for a year and was thrilled to be able to attend a show with National Overtones and see a lot of the men that I had read about in Gem but never had the pleasure of meeting. Where were you in 76? I was 26 years old and had hair! I hope that you will enjoy this Blast from the Past and I also hope that you will forgive the lack of captions on some of the pictures as I have simplly forgotten who and what some of the shots are of.
