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.

Gunslingin' Tony 1964

Gunslingin' Tony 1964

My dad Tony showing off his new 1964 Ford Galaxie XL 500 and making sure no one goes near it. He is holding a Ruger Blackhawk .22 and is wearing a custom made holster. Picture was taken by my mother at my childhood home backyard in New Castle, PA. Dad traded in the car in 1969 where the new owner gave it an early demise 3 months later. View full size.

My first car

My first car was a '64 Galaxie 500 two door (not an XL, though). I was 19, and it was already an old car in 1982. I could smoke any Camaro at the stoplight with it. One day I'll own another one.
