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.

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."
