Great idea and i'm looking forward to seeing all other offerings in this thread and will try and find a few of my oldies.

I found these that I took in 1949 with a folding Balda or some such camera and scanned them:-

My transport around Malta (please note, you old bikers, no engine that came several years later)

Ah, what it was to be young.........

Bob (perhaps someone can please tell me how to upload these so that they appear larger than thumbnails? Thanks.)
