Submissions to our "Picture of the Week" contest continue to trickle in at a reduced rate.  For the second week in a row, we received only a few dozen entries not uncommon for this time of year.  Fortunately, we ran a selection of holiday-themed photos last week and rolled over those pictures into this week's competition allowing us plenty of photos to choose from, including a handful of oh-so-nifty bonus pics.

Interestingly, many of the past couple of weeks' photos were black-and-whites and more than a few of those were "vintage" photos readers found in their scrapbooks.  So to kick us off this week, here are three of our favorite black-and-whites ... .


Due to privacy issues, AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of readers who submit photos.

Allan Berg
of Atlantic Beach, New York tells us that's

was about 17 years old at this time in the late 1920s.
He designed and built with a number of friends
while he was in Long Beach (NY) High School."
In case you're wondering, the glider rose to a
height of three feet when "towed by a cab."
