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.

A Man's Legacy

Reason No. 1000 why you should never let yourself be photographed in a little toy wagon being pulled by a miniature donkey: 111 years later that photograph will be posted on a website for millions of people to see, and your legacy for the rest of eternity will be, "Look at that jackass riding in that silly wagon!"

Here's to the Newlyweds!

Their marriage is off to a great start. He's already getting her goat, and she's riding his, um, mule.


Nice woman on that ass.

Please, please, please!

Oh, please let Wills & Kate see this pic and get some stunning ideas. I hear they postponed their honeymoon so they could wait until the proper photograph was revealed on Shorpy!

The Beach, Yuck!

It looks like a mixture of trash, butts and animal dung.
