I am sure folks have old photos of Mt Washington and the area they would like to share.

A friend gave me a copy of a photo in the April 1960 Eastern Ski Bulletin.

Nice one Brad. The only one I can find is a pic of myself as a youngin' somewhere near the summit. My guess is the cow pasture just off of the auto road, circa 1980? I guess trail signs don't change much in 30 years:

A picture I took in 1960 of HoJo's.

Tuckerman Headwall viewed from HoJo's I think 1964.

This had to have been from Clay or the Jewell Trail - 1964.

Going down Tux Headwall - 1964

Just looking at this I am guessing this was the summit of Adams.

I am open for correction on any of these - but my guess on this is Lions Head just as you get above treeline.

You can see the Auto Road on the left - so this is probably on Adams.

Not sure on this

Tukerman Headwall is far better shape than today
