Born in Philadelphia, later a Bostonian and later still a "hall of fame", fountain-designing Aspenite, nick DeWolf was a unique, inspiring, engaging and curious soul. A founder of Boston's Teradyne corporation, He was also a lifelong, extremely passionate and talented photographer, as evidenced by the images presented on flickr.

From the 1950’s to the 90’s he carried a camera with him at all times, usually a family of cameras.

There’s an archivist working to post Nick's images in their original sets as they are scanned and processed. An admirer put it best:
"A stunning, day-by-day journey through America a half century ago. This project is simply unparalleled."

Here are some of my favs:
It's hard to believe this girl is in her 70's - cool portrait

I would kill for that 1950 Shoebox Ford - dude's a total player

When a Jeep was a Jeep - 1950-something Willys CJ - sigh

The amazing pics go on and on
