Hello Don and List,

Here you will find the original Life Magazine article and the
two pretty clear Trent photos published on June 26 1950 (page
40):

Here you will find the photo of the Trent son on a stepladder:

Of course, you'll get extremely good views of the originals on
Bruce Maccabee's site:

http://brumac.8k.com/trent1.html

Please observe the bush behind the shed: in the Trent photos, you
can easily see the landscape through the bush.

Not so on the stepladder shot: the bush is much more dense.

The same can be said about the line of bushes growing in the
distance.

Conclusion: the stepladder picture was taken much later in the
season and could not have served as a "test" for an hoax.

Furthermore, there is the format of the films.

If the stepladder photos I see and the pictures displayed on
Maccabee's site have not been cropped, then they don't come from
the same roll of film.
