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.
My parents bought property in Southern Utah about 1970 with the intention to build a cabin for our family.They did,and it took over a decade to finish. But the work was worth it.
It was eventually sold in the early 90s to help with their retirement.
Here are my little brother and our Mom playing catch on the dirt road near where our cabin would be.
The car is our 1965 Plymouth Fury III with a massive 383 cubic inch gas guzzling V-8, a car which would haul the trailer we stayed in up there. I drove that car as a senior in high school;it was a thrill to drive up to my friends homes with that burbling exhaust promising teenage adventure.
