Hey Dartmoor Dave, about the vignetting in that lovely photo of yours, this was a "feature" common to photos I took with my much-loved Vivitar S1 28-90. It happens with that lens when set to its widest setting at wide open apertures. Once stopped down a bit, the vignetting disappears. I just ignored it, it didn't really bother me, but it was there, and when I saw your photo, that was the first thing I thought of. Do you recall the lens you were using? Also, with some wides, the addition of a filter can cause a similar amount of vignetting.

When Dad was at Penhold, Alberta, teaching on these Harvards. He might even be flying one!

Not nearly as noisy as a Harvard. I think this might be my great-grandfather but not sure yet. You can just make out "Magog Garage" at the back on the right.

Edmonton river valley shot from our apartment in September of 1982. A little straightening and touching up a couple of dust spots. Some vignetting in the corners, did not have a hood for this lens at that time.

I did many overnights in YEG. Have there been big changes since your photo?

Yes, just a few. In this Earth Cam view one of the apartment buildings in the distance across the river valley, seen above the Rogers Place (new Oilers hockey area), was the location I took the photo. There is a webcam on one of the buildings with a similar view, can't seem to find the link at the moment.

The lowest bridge in the foreground near the power plant has recently been replaced.
