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.
Another photo of my dad with his new '67 Austin Healey 3000 in early 1968. He was a newspaper reporter and he has his "Murrow" London Fog trench coat on for the chilly top-down morning drive to Oakland (S.F. Bay Area). He made a small sticker with a label maker (remember those?) that said, "Disraeli Rides Again!" and it was applied on the inside of the glove box door. View full size.
