Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.
Vintage photos of:
Fred Clark of Van Horn, Texas and his cactus garden. I haven't counted all of the succulent little beauties (beware the search traffic that phrase will draw), but I'll go out on a limb and say there are many hundred. Ouch! View full size. (Courtesy Portal to Texas History).
This is the first of a number of images we plan to post from a coalition of west Texas museums. The kind folks at the Texas Mountain Trail contacted us with an offer we couldn't refuse: Access to old photographs. You can see all of the images in our Texas Mountain Trial gallery.
