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.

Family Ties

Bodie is also a National Historic Landmark, the highest listing in the federal historic preservation system.

My great-grandparents were married in Bodie in 1878, and I have a copy of my great-grandfather's deed to the lot he owned there.


I grew up in Bishop, CA. I remember taking school field trips to Bodie at least once a year. Imagine my surprise as a browsed through my RSS feeds and saw this lovely photo of Main Street!

I look forward to viewing more! Thanks.

Re: Ron Partridge

Imogen Cunningham's son is Rondal, not Ronald. The HABS archive caption info gives this particular photographer's name as Ronald Partridge.

Ron Partridge

These photos of Ron's should also be accompanied by the comment that he was a twin son of Imogen Cunningham.
