About the Photos

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.

On Shorpy:
Today's Top 5


This was just nine months before the birth of their beautiful, curly-haired son. At the time of the picture, they seemed to have absolutely everything. Less than three years later, I'm sure they would have given it all up, gladly, just to have their baby back.

Vega Indeed

It's an early Vega.


On a different subject: does anyone recognise the plane? It looks like an early Lockheed Vega (without the NACA cowling).


In response to the run-on sentence, all I can say is, "WOW"! Do you have your tinfoil hat on and your windows covered?


Or the Rand Corporation! Or the Reverse Vampires!


The writer of the previous post undoubtedly didn't sign a name to it for fear of reprisals from the conspiracy of the Government, big business, the Elders of Zion and the guy on the grassy knoll.

No kidnapping

Their baby was not kidnapped, they did not want it because of abnormalities and claimed it was kidnapped and they even let an innocent man be punished for it !!!!
