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.

Royal Garage

If you had told me that this was a photo of the staff at the facility that was preparing the Coaches for the Coronation of King George VI in 1937, I would have absolutely believed it.

No guessing here

We can most definitely tell which of these men are part of management and which are the "grease monkeys"!

At Your Service

Washington Post, May 23, 1920

To Distribute Haynes Cars.

Wayne Smith Auto Co. Will Handle Line in This Territory.

Haynes cars will be distributed in Washington, northern Virginia, central West Virginia and part of Maryland by Wayne Smith & Co. This concern, which is headed by Wayne Smith, well known in local automotive circles, has just completed a new building at the corner of Twenty-second and M streets, which will be given over entirely to the sale and service of this car.

The car is built in both six and twelve cylinder models and furnished in both types in open and closed models, roadsters and touring cars.

Service for this car will be in charge of Harry E. Hartung and Earl Ennis, both well-known service men.
