Looking at this slide, I keep thinking that it has to be one of those shock web pages, which appears all calm and collected, but SUDDENLY something loud, obnoxious and animated happens.
So, if you wait for a while.....

A fine looking warehouse, with some fine looking autos out front.
Some Googling makes me think that this could be 1950's Cincinnati, possibly. Some deep digging reveals

There's a great box of slide in the collection, marked "Koosharem, Utah", and seems to depict a Fall 1950 hunting expedition. Proper tents, and lots and LOTS of freshly butchered venison.
Why the Red Hats ? Fashion statement, or may an attempt to avoid being shot by so many red-necked hunters.
Bonus - Gulp. Volkswagen T3 Crash Test
Bonus 2 - Not always what you think.

While Billy Mitchell may have disappeared (see yesterday's pic), the rest of the Mitchell family gather for a family photo, and you can really tell what they're thinking :
Frank Mitchell : "I fought on the beaches of Okinawa, but to have a draft dodger as a sone....well, that really grinds my gears."
Margaret Mitchell : "Great...I finally have a daughter...of sort."
Robert Mitchell : "Military College... dammit. I don't deserve this. My parents hate me."
Kevin Mitchell : "Great. I get a bedroom of my own now!"

The sixties were a tough time for Billy Mitchell. He didn't want to be drafted, and didn't want to move to Canada.
So, one night, Billy disappeared.
The next day, distant cousin Wilhelmina (from Wales, apparently) arrived.
It's a period in the Mitchel Family History that is rarely talked about.
Bonus - Who's that actor who plays Sherlock?

A fairly well known icon of medieval art. If I can quote Wikipedia...
David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created in marble between 1501 and 1504 by Henry Moore. David is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft) marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue represents the former Prime Minister David Cameron, a favored subject in the art of Florence.
Bonus : Ever wonder why that eBay purchase takes so long to arrive?
