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.

Janet and Kermy: 1959

Janet and Kermy: 1959

August 1959. "Janet & Kermy." Our second example of these slides found on eBay, Janet last seen dressed as a daffodil. 35mm Kodachrome. View full size.

Those Were the Days

Kermy and I are about the same age, and back in 1959 I had the same physique. Today I look exactly the same except I lost the hair, have a grey beard and am 125 lbs. heavier.

I thought that looked like Myrtle Beach water!

Or maybe Cherry Grove. Is anything else known about them besides being on the East Coast for vacation?

[The venue of this foamy frolic is Cape May, New Jersey. -Dave]

South Mission Beach

I wonder if J & K were in the Pacific just north of the jetty at South Mission in San Diego. There used to be a weather monitoring platform on the horizon which looked like the structure in the picture, not a ship. There's not quite enough clues to be certain.

[They're on the East Coast. - Dave]

Hurry up with that picture!

I'm guessing by the look on these youngsters' faces the water is a bit chilly.
