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.

East Coast Pineapples

My guess would be they were grown in Florida or the Caribbean. I would think shipping them from the Pacific would be cost- and time-prohibitive.


When seersucker ruled.

Turkey Season

It wasn't all that long ago that turkey was only for Thanksgiving... was it?


A large local furniture business starts aggressively promoting formal dining sets for "dining room season" just about this time every year and it runs through January, so I'm thinkin' it must co-incide with the "big eating season" which would include turkey and the several feasting celebrations beginning around November.


Turkey Season generally starts about the same time as Pumpkin Season and runs through Egg Nog Season. Bon appétit!


Too bad there are no price signs visible; would be very interested in what pineapples brought in 1936 on the east coast, being as they are so perishable and were shipped such a long distance.

Wabbit season

Exactly when is Turkey season?

Turkeys in season

I have never heard of "Turkeys in Season." What did that pertain to?
