Collection of Sierra related photos. (VERY IMAGE HEAVY!!!!)

Post by Tawmis » Mon Feb 10, 2020 12:16 pm

These are on SierraGamers.com - but I figured I'd start a thread - if someone has some other cool Sierra photos that they're aware of (of the creators, and such)...

Some that Ken posted were really cool, because it's like family time...

The thing that kills me - the B&W of The Two Guys From Andromeda ... I know there are others - of Al Lowe, Roberta & Ken, Christy Marx, and the Coles... because I had them.

And years ago (I think when I moved from San Diego to Tennessee), they were tragically lost in the move (along with all my exchanges with Bridget McKenna from Interaction)...

EDIT: Speaking of Interaction I know they had photos of Sierra employees in there; I will go through those and screen capture some of the employee photos and add them here too.

There are a few there that I have not seen before. It would be nice to have more back story behind each of these. I noticed John in the mix. He is one that I have to bite my tongue on FB when he appears in my feed. He is a bit of a right-wingnut and I do not want to start something up with him that would ruin being able to ask him about Sierra related stuff.

Yeah, my other thread where there were some photos I'd never seen before, that got me thinking about doing this...

Yes, John Williams was in at least one of the photos.

Most of the photos were presented as is - but yeah; the ones that Ken posted a link to "The Old Photos" - are just that. A bunch of older photos. Was amazing seeing Roberta as a kid, and also in her graduating outfit, and stuff like that. That's why I figured I'd post them here to archive them here (in the event - I doubt it will ever happen - but if SierraGamers goes away - we'd still have the photos archived here).

I am using the Wiki for things like that. Could setup an unsorted historical photos page or category for this.

Oh, sure! If you want to create the page - and let me know the URL - I can get these moved over there. I just thought these would be cool to archive. And like I said, I want to go through the Interaction Magazines where there might be more pictures like these worth saving.

Here is a parking/upload page. Just edit the page and click the embed file button to the right of the big "A" button and replace the "Example.jpg" with the file name of the photo to upload and save the page.

Code: Select all

[[File:Example.jpg]]
Once saved it will create a link to bring up the upload dialog. Some of these photos are just numbered. I want them to be searchable, so add any notes you can find about the given photo. Use file names that are descriptive, even if only a guess. Use web safe names i.e. alpha-numeric with no spaces (such as "YoungRobertaWilliams.jpg").

Love the shot of Al Lowe playing the sax. :) I've seen some of these before, but many of them are new to me. Thanks for sharing, Tawmis! :)

Ken and Roberta have certainly aged well, by the way. ;) But who is this? I don't think I know him.

It's either Ken Williams or his son.
