    Nice camera collection, Steve! My husband has an old Rolleiflex. I think they're lovely to look at as well as to use. Anyway, this is my first effort for the week ... a song from 1929, which was actually the first song I thought of when I saw your theme (I must be SO old!) The handsome chap in the photos is John Gilbert, who was unable to make the transition to "Talkies" because he had a squeaky little voice, completely at odds with his screen persona.

    I'm never really sure how tenuous a link I can get away with, but here's one that mentions a barber showing photographs in line one, so let's see if that works. Mind, I suspect no barber would want to show off a photo of my head right now.



    I don't think I've tried doing a Beatles song before. I didn't have a piccolo trumpet handy, and it's not as if I could play it anyway, so instead I've added a bit of rudimentary tuneless recorder at the end.

    I've reorganised my "lab" a bit, and I thought I'd see what would happen if I tried playing while standing up. I think the most obvious effect is that you can't hear the squeaky chair on percussion any more.

    I think that makes 17 songs from 15 Seasonistas, pretty good going in 36 hours. At the start I had a small list of songs in my head which I was expecting, and I think they have all been done except one (which I did at the Saturday zoom session, so anyone there knows which one). But I have also been impressed by your song-hunting skills, finding photo related references in all sorts of songs I had not thought of.

    Looking forward to being exposed to many many more...

    I’m surprised this wasn’t done earlier. Was this from the open mic, Steve?

    Anyway, George and Ringo did some fine collaborations without the other lads.

    The site truncates my signature so I can't tell you

    Don't think I have seen one of these before, but I found lots of info on them here. Yours is about 70 years old. Dare I ask when it last had a film in it?

    i'd say it would have been the late 60's early 70's
    i may have used it when i did some developing and processing (enlarging and printing) with dad's help when in high school
    dad's looks like a Diax I from that information

    My third and last for the week. Liz has already posted a great version of this, but she encouraged others to do it anyway in the youtube comments! So I have had a go:



    The first verse felt odd to sing, what with me working in education and all that, so I promise I don't really mean it .
