About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

San Joaquin Tractor: 1966

San Joaquin Tractor: 1966

San Joaquin Tractor Co. in California, June 1966. The land yacht is a 1958 Oldsmobile. Another slide from the thrift store box purchased on 9-14-2012. View full size.

And on your right....

a '63 or '64 Falcon, and a '64 Tempest. Far left in the parking lot, a '63 Impala.

More like a barge

than a land yacht. I owned one of these once. It had a couple of virtues, but those did not include driving it in Japan in 1965/6.

The car in the foreground is a

1958 Oldsmobile 88. The car in the intersection is a 1962 Buick Skylark.

And the "non land yacht"

is a BUICK!
