    I want to start a war. This will never live up to the old Vintage pics as long as its still called that. What if we change the name of it and start a new legacy. I am not the one to come up with a new name but maybe "Pics from the past" or "Antique and classic pics" or you come up with something.

    I agree with you Robbie, I much prefer seeing a full photo when i open a post.

    Yep, those small pics are hard on old eyes. Can you fix it, Mike?

    I can ask for access and permissions in the future to be able to change settings - that is real limited now. I will do that when we get our software upgrade.

    Are member expressing that they want to be able to just scroll through and see the image in full size? Yes currently you need to click on the thumbnail to brig it to the full capable size. Again we will need to wait and see what upgraded features the new software will offer. Member Jon N. does all the behind the scenes work on the automated systems and he is still working on an upgrade.

    So here are two more images of the Milwaukee FD with their motorcycles. I was appreciative of the responsiveness from the Milwaukee Fire Historic Society.

    Jim from the MFHS said this first photo is from their Fire Station "Engine 24." He indicated he thought it was from the "teens." It may be a different motorcycle from the earlier photos I included. I only say that because it is missing the ooh-ga horn on the handlebars.

    This photo as Jim said is

    a Harley at MFD station 32. This picture was likely taken in the winter of 1915.

    Yes, like the old CAImag where those of us with old eyes could scroll through BIG photos.
    I seem to recall that being the case with the AMCA Forum a few years back-faulty memory?

    Caimag had the same issue, if one were to post to the Caimag site directly, for the Caimag site to host the picture, then you got a thumbnail to click for a larger view. But the folks that regularly posted to the Caimag (..and thanks to those guys!) "Vintage Pictures of the Day" always utilized photo hosting sites....and then their pictures showed up full size in the post instead of as a thumbnail needing to be clicked. It's all about server capacity, the more giga-whats you store on your server the more it costs you to host a website.
