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.

They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Dad's second British sports car, after his '52 MG-TD, was this new 1966 MG Midget. After selling the TD in 1956 he bought a new '56 VW, then a used '52 Chevy, then a new '62 Ford Falcon which was traded in for the Midget. Dad really wanted an Austin Healey 3000 so he traded the Midget in for a '67 3000 in early 1968. East Richmond Heights, San Francisco Bay Area, 1966. View full size.
