  • Stockton Main Street fire department activity, between 1957-1959

    Stockton Main Street fire department activity, between 1957-1959

    Dedicating this blog post to the local Stockton historians. I came across this images in Joel’s 3×4″ Press negatives. It’s clearly the JC Penney store on Main Street at the corner of American. That makes it post 1954 and pre 1965-ish. This negative was found in a box with 1959 basketball images. There seems to […]

  • COP Basketball, Box 105, 1959

    COP Basketball, Box 105, 1959

    The images in previous blog post were all from the bench at the Pepperdine vs COP match from Feb 4, 1959. Box 105 has two more match dates scribbled on the side. San Jose State played COP on January 16, 1959 and USF played COP on Feb 13, one week after the Pepperdine match. Following […]

  • Naranjado, Sports, 1959, Box 105, 1959

    Naranjado, Sports, 1959, Box 105, 1959

    While Joel was at SJC and COP, he submitted with great regularity images for the Pacific Weekly and the COP yearbook, Naranjado. Quite a few of his images were published from 1942 through 1948. Some years with credit but quite a few times there were no credits for the photographers that were not part of […]

  • COP Football Shoot, JFC, 1959

    COP Football Shoot, JFC, 1959

    Six negatives left over in 120 roll film format. The label on the envelope reads “COP Football, Sept 2, 1959” This confirms that Joel was shooting 120/220 format as early as 1959. I’ve seen a few other sample from that vintage float by. Joel still shoots the 3×4″ Press Format and the 4×5″ Large Format, […]

  • Bank of America Parking Lot, Sleeve 5

    Bank of America Parking Lot, Sleeve 5

    There’s no date on this 4×5″ negative sleeve out of my collection. A total of 7 negatives and a little puzzle to unravel. Joel photographed parking lot stripes from a Bank of America parking lot. No further location. The above image was photographed with Joel’s Koni-Omega medium frame camera. So after 1959, but more likely […]

  • Stockton Camera Club, JFC, 1968

    Stockton Camera Club, JFC, 1968

    The Stockton Daily Evening Record of Thursday, November 11, 1948 has following front page news article: “The Stockton Camera Club was organized last night with 47 camera enthusiasts on hand for the meeting in Weber School Auditorium. The Club will meet every two weeks, with the next session set for November 23 at a place […]

  • Ceramics Critters, JFC, 1965

    Ceramics Critters, JFC, 1965

    We’re setting the clock back to 1965. Joel photographed the shaping and decorating of what appears to be ceramic face masks. He called them “Critters” by lack of a better word in his vocabulary I guess. There’s no information retained on the 4×5″ negative sleeve on the what, when, who and where. Just showing the […]

  • 45 N Hunter Street, JFC, Sep 1974

    45 N Hunter Street, JFC, Sep 1974

    The previous blog post showed the front door of 45 N Hunter Street, Freeman – Rishwain Law Offices. By the time Joel returns to this site some three months later, the sign at the door has changed to “Law Offices of Freeman, Rishwain & Hall”. The principals are Maxwell M. Freeman, Robert J. Rishwain and […]

  • Stockton Sights, JFC, June 1974

    Stockton Sights, JFC, June 1974

    This sleeve contains a variety of formats. The vast majority is 3 1/4″ x 5.5″, also known as 122 format roll film. This was a popular format in the beginning of the 20th century. (CIrca 1905 and later) I believe however Joel may have enlarged 120 format roll film onto the 3 1/4″ wide format […]

  • Weber Point, Sleeve 3, 1971-72

    Weber Point, Sleeve 3, 1971-72

    These negatives are similar to the ones we discussed yesterday. Enlarged 120 roll film to a 4.5 x 7″ format. All these images are photographed at or around Weber Point. The finished or almost finished I-5 is visible in the background in few of the shots. The first 4 images were photographed in short succession […]
