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.

Le Bureau: 1964

Le Bureau: 1964

This photo was taken at my father's company, Dassault Aéronautique, in 1964 at Joinville-le-Pont, near Paris in France. My father is at the middle of the image. In the background, is the Marne river. View full size.

Happy New Year

more or less, according to the calendar on the desk.

Fascinating

I can smell that frosty air mixed with bus diesel outside those windows. I lived in Paris in 1964-65 while attending high school. This scene is so familiar.

Box

That looks like a slide rule box to your father's right. Another lost art today.

Welcome Goudy

What a fine picture. Are these people engineers, or accountants, or something else? I like the furniture in this office; reminds me of IKEA! Never underestimate the aircraft of Dassault. The Mirage was, and is, one of the best jet fighters ever!

Iconic

I do believe that I see a Citroën 2CV behind the curtain near the center of the frame.
