I know these shots taken on Mashell Ave. are small, but that’s because they were taken by Dick Logston in 1947-48 on a Donald Duck camera he received for Christmas.

Here’s what he has to say, “I think the boy one the bike is myself, but not 100 percent sure. The other two were taken across the street in front of the old theater which was a church at the time. You can see the side of the old Redmen’s Hall.”

Hopefully, you can help us identify some of the people, like the woman at the gate, or the significance of the car.

“It appears to have some sort of signage on the door,” says Dick.

For those of you who are curious about the Donald Duck camera, here’s some information taken from the www.historiccamera.com.

The Donald Duck camera was manufactured made by the Herbert George Company of Chicago Illinois in circa 1946. It was constructed of a rigid shock-resistant bakelite plastic with a molded built-in view finder located on the top of the camera. It was capable of capturing twelve exposures, 1 5/8 x 1 5/8 inch in size, on number 127 color or black & white roll film. It featured a fixed focus lens and simple snap shot shutter for quick shots.

This was the first camera patented by George L. Isreal in 1946. The original models were olive drab color, with later ones in black. The back featured a unique artwork of the Disney characters, Donald, Huey, Dewey and Louie. This camera model was also used for several other models including the Happi-Time, Herco 12, and Roy Rogers Jr.
