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.

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!
