So Ive been looking through a lot of pictures of my grandfather who I didnt really get to know to well as he died while I was fairly young but I found these pictures and I feel he would have been a big supporter of the Fine Living, Home, Design & Auto. He was an architect, artist, and for the hell of it bought a Rolls Royce and chauffeured people for fun. Here are some pretty neat pictures that I think are fitting.


(he had two of the couches above and saved both)

(My dumb ass brother left the Herman Miller chair in a apartment he got kicked out of)

He was no one famous but he tried to get his name out there. I just kind of wanted to show these pictures because I thought they where cool. I say anyone can post cool pictures but I think it would be better to keep a theme and maybe post older family members. I am sure people have cool pictures of family members that would be nice to be seen by others.

That he did. While cleaning the attic I found every box for each item even tubes along with the manuals.

While normal people had kitty cats as house pets he went a little bigger. Yes it was aloud in the house.

They where late 60's early 70's. Sadly most the electronics where sold by my grandmother before I could teach her that they where valuable then she thought. Although from the boxes I found there where 6-8 mcintosh items, Grado, among others I cant remember off the top of my head.

Your grand dad-looked like Mik Jagger and had a mountain lion for a pet?

I wonder how many times LabelKing has jerked off to those pics. Very cool finds, BTW.
