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.

Steve Austin Christmas: 1977

Steve Austin Christmas: 1977

Indianapolis, 1977. My youngest Brother Jim had a $6 Million Dollar Christmas. Here he has Steve Austin, the 6 Million Dollar Man, stored in the Bionic Transport and Repair Station.

I expected to embarrass him with this image at our family gathering this summer but instead I found Steve Austin and and his repair station in my niece's playroom! Jim had gotten these toys out of storage just months ago.

35mm B&W taken with my Yashica SLR and processed at home. View full size.

$6 Million Heirloom

My son still has my old $6 Million Man figure in a toychest at the foot of his bed.

I loved that thing almost as much as my old Evil Knievel Motorcycle set. Steve Austin often was able to outrun Evil back in the day!

Re: Toys

And you can be sure that Slinky is a metal coil, not plastic!

With five children in the house we learned that Santa needed a system to deliver the correct gifts to each child. On the love seat and the table in the background are Thank You placeholder notes to Santa indicating where a specific child's gifts were to be placed.

Never mind Bionic Man, I want that Slinky!
