Let's see if this works...

You all asked, so I went into the "old razor box" and did my best to take a few pictures with my new iPhone that I'm also getting used to LOL !

In any event, if you can see this trial pic let me know I did it right, and I will put up the remainder.

I used the "upload to Imgur" after dragging the picture to the desktop and selecting it.
It seems to be too large when I went to "review post".
I don't know how to make it smaller.
I am using a Mac computer, maybe that has something to do with it...
If anybody can clarify this, by telling me how you do it, I will put up some additional pictures.
Thanks,
Jim

No pic Jim.

If you are using a Mac...
When the pic is on your desktop, open it.
In "Preview" select "Tools" and the "Adjust size."
Change the value for either "height" or "width" (or "resolution") to a smaller number.
Your aim is to have a resulting file size of 500 or less.
Then close the image and use Imagur to upload.
If there is a lot of traffic Imagur won't always load the first time.
When it is up loaded to your post successfully you will see something like this:

Here we go Gents:

The "Old Type" and "New" were my fathers. They were in a " Bostonian" box and a " Red & Black " box that I also have but not here in Arizona.

I bought the "Fat Boy" sometime in High school and the "Slim" at some point during college. Probably, a couple of bucks, if that, at the time.

My father was born in 1900. He had a few razors that are still in good shape due to the fact that he didn't use them regularly. After WW2 he bought a G-Bar Gem that was his favorite and it was all he ever used thereafter. I still have it and it is amazing that after a zillion shaves over forty years it still shines like new.
"They don't make um like they used to" ... is, in this case, more than a phrase:
