About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Look What We Got!

Look What We Got!

"Rinker boys. June 1960." This looks to be in California. View full size.

 

Ten years after

This was my brothers & me in 1970 - Pińon pines, pickup beds and all.

High Desert II

That is a pinon pine tree and the boys are holding trout. That looks like the Inyo Mountains in the background. Maybe a day of fishing on one of the creeks in the Owens Valley.

High Desert

My guess is the high desert. Desert Hot Springs maybe, or Twentynine Palms -- give or take. Nice looking fish guys. Beautiful sightseeing. Miss it muchly.

California

Judging from yellow plate on the pick-up - and a 1960s date, California sounds right. Probably somewhere in Southern California.

Colors

The colors here are beautiful.
