I guess at some stage I ought to post a few Holga shots as well, but, not today. I think I pretty much took half and half between the Holga and the Hasselblad SWC. This is another from the SWC, taken as the photo illustrates at the 61 Drive-In which is situated, surprise, surprise on U.S. Route 61. The drive-in is situated close to the city of Maquoketa, Iowa. I really can't tell you much about the city as I didn't visit it. As it was, I drove by the drive-in twice without stopping which goes against my photo rules. So, with one day left I decided I'd get my ass back there to take a few shots. I picked a bitterly cold day and could only stay out of the car for 5 minutes at a time. It was the first time I had wandered around a drive-in. There isn't much there really, just the screen and the projection room, which is all you need I guess. This particular one you tuned to a certain radio frequency to listen to the soundtrack - I have no idea if that is general practice.
So, there are a few more of the place that will appear from time to time but at least this one identifies it for you. For those with an interest, here is an aerial view of the 61 Drive-In and the surrounding area.

Eve of destruction, tax deduction, city inspectors, bill collectors,
Mod clothes in demand, population out of hand, suicide, too many bills,
Hippies moving to the hills. People all over the world are shouting, 'End the war.'
