Harley Earl at General Motors Motorama 1956 by 

Harley J. Earl (1893 – 1969) was the first Vice President of Design at General Motors. He was an industrial designer and pioneer of modern transportation design. A coachbuilder by trade, Earl was also the pioneer in using freeform sketching and hand sculpted clay models as design techniques. He introduced the “concept car” as both a tool for the design process and a clever marketing device. This image is originally from a Stereographic transparency that I own which I have restored.

After photographing professionally for 30 years, I now photograph for pleasure.
Restoring old photographs and transparencies for family history buffs like me to preserving the past for the future, is a passion that I have been doing for over 35 years. From semi-precious stones that I have collected, I am designing Mandalas for mindfulness meditation to help people feel better about themselves.
