Nick DeWolf’s Motorcycle Photography

Nick DeWolf carried around multiple cameras for most of his life, cataloguing the events and views around him. Nick was a MIT graduate, engineer, entrepreneur, and photographer. He co-founded Teradyne in 1960, a Boston based company that manufactured automatic test equipment. Back then, automated equipment like this was a big deal. They didn’t exactly have super computers and google back then.

His son-in-law, Steve Lundeen, has archived his photo collection on flickr- with a total of over 77,000 scanned images. These are some of my favorites.
