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.

Today's Top 5

Are you SURE

you aren't Ralphie's younger brother? The one who came AFTER Randy ("Christmas Story").

This is one seriously cute pic!

The making of a young man

Clearly if you've the sharpest creases in your trousers that'll help you find eggs every time.

Great Easter pic.

Good For You!

In spite of having been a tyke plagued with never-rectified amblyopia, young tterrace has found the egg nonetheless.

Easter Cutie!


That has got to be one of the cutest pictures.

Just Like Easter Candy

This is one sweet picture. Thanks, tterrace.

The reel deal

Didja ever have to cut springtime grass with one of those old reel-type push mowers? Well, didja ever wonder why old timey city yards were so small & full of flower beds & rock gardens? If your first answer was yes, your second one will always be NO.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to all!!
