"I like what you're doing.  How can I help?"

There are three ways you can help out:

1) Share images with us and your neighbors.  People like to see images of old amusement
parks, shopping centers, parks, motels, drive-in theatres, drive-in restaurants, events,
stadiums, clubs, advertisements etc.  There is a specific want list at the bottom of this 
page including E-MAIL and contact information.

2) Participate in discussions on the Message Boards.  You don't have to use your E-MAIL
address and you don't have to use your last name.  Discussion is just as useful as
images for sharing and celebrating memories.

3) NorVApics.com is a labor of love.  It's also very expensive to maintain.  Of course there 
are hosting and domain fees but the largest expense is from accumulating postcards, yearbooks
and photographs for you to enjoy.  Some revenue is generated by selling yearbooks and photos
but not nearly enough to keep the site up and running and continually updated with fresh 
images.  If you like what we're doing and you would like to help out by making a donation 
in any amount.  Donations of $9 or more will make the collection of vintage images available
to you for the duration of the current month.  

You can send a donation via PayPal.com for instant access.

"What kinds of images are you looking for?"

At this point I am most interested in old family videos, 8mm films, slides or photographs 
of families or individuals at local amusement parks, drive-in movie theatres, lakes, 
concerts or businesses.  I'm always looking for photos or scans, dating from the 
1950s-1970s, of any of the following:

This is a shot in the dark but I'd like to try to locate the family that
is documented in a collection of 8mm reels that I came across recently.  
Many of the reels are marked Lorton and center around a house with flagstones 
in a wooded neighborhood.  There are scenes with puppies and a poodle, a boy 
and a girl - both 10-12, the girl playing the piano, the girl with an elaborate 
birthday cake, a visit to what appears to be Marshall Hall Amusement Park with 
lots of relatives and a picnic, a Christmas tree and a visit to Florida.  One 
reel is marked "Cathy's B'day 12-18-1965".  The initials J.F. appear on several 
reels and one of the reels has the address:

June Milkie
729 Highland Ave.
Johnstown, Penna

My guess is that J.F. was visiting Aunt Louise and Uncle X in Lorton so I may 
be actually searching for someone named Louise that lived in Lorton from 

Douglas Burdette is looking for:
Jewel Massey 
aka Bruce Shipman 
poss. aka Burce Massey
