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.

This photo, showing our 1958 DeSoto Firesweep (thanks, ptcruiser, for the ID!), was taken in Apalachicola, Florida, in 1964. I'm at the left, pointing seemingly at nothing, along with my mom, my brother Jeffrey and our new Chihuahua, Tiger. My dad, as a pilot, was always on the lookout for a great place to keep his airplanes, and Apalach had an abandoned Army Air Force training field with big empty hangars to spare. View full size.
