1950 Snow Storm, Dayton, OH - The snow storm that hit Dayton, Ohio in 1950 became a generational event for the Puterbaugh family as the city was virtually shutdown. Out of state family members were stranded in their home for several days.
Dayton Aviation - These images are a few of the aviation photographs that Rollyn took over his career.
Historic Dayton - Most of Rollyn's work was commercial photography but through the years he developed a number of "accidental historic" photos.
Parkmoor Album - In the 1950's and 1960's, Parkmoor Restaurant was a major customer. Many free dinners were available to kids as soon as the food had been photographed in the studio.
Rike's - Rike's was a major client. They published a monthly newsletter in which Rollyn provided the photo content of each edition. Crazy times before each deadline.
