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.

Eye Pollution

Those dang Coca-Cola billboards are ruining the scenery!


Something is awry in the chronology. Although it was authorized in the 1920s, Shenandoah wasn't established as a National Park until 1936.

[Too bad they didn't have the Internet back in 1925. - Dave]


Beautifully composed photo of a bucolic setting, with a sprinkling of effervescence!

If it wasn't for the car

If it wasn't for the car, I would think that that is a photo of East Kentucky in the 1970 or even 1980s. Travelling through Appalachia at that time, it would be very easy to find a dirt road such as this one. Kinda of makes me homesick.
