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.

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.


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


The colors here are beautiful.
