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.

I remember rollies

In 1969-70, as a high school sophomore, I had a friend who loved to roll his own. He always hoped someone would think it was a joint and call the cops, but I don't think he ever got his wish!

And rolling his own...

See the sack of "Bull" (Durham, cigarette tobacco) behind his hand. Anyone remember that?

Fancy Buckles

The guy on the far right has got himself some fancy buckle shoes, unusual to say the least have not seen this type of shoe(s)(i guess he has another shoe on the other foot)before.

Quite an assortment of characters here!

I think the guy in the middle is what you would call a real live (not now of course) "Hayseed"

P.S. Love the shoes (or boots?) the guy on the right has on.

Gee, I wonder

why there doesn't seem to be too many students in the grade 6-7-8 and nine classrooms ?
