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.

Their Town

I would also like to know what part of town this is. My grandparents and dad are from Mount Pleasant. It pretty much looks the same all these years later. Amazing.

What street is this?

I live in Mount Pleasant and would like to know what street this is. BTW I found this site a couple of days ago and my work production has gone way down. Thanks Shorpy.


Marvelous. It feels like I can walk right into the picture.

Life looked so much more

Life looked so much more peacful there....
