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.

'35 Chevy truck

Dennis M,

The truck is a 1935 Chevy.

O.G. Hotaling

Orville G. Hotaling (1875-1954) is buried at Chestnut Lawn Cemetery, New Baltimore, Greene County, N.Y.

'40 Chevy & ?

Well we have a fairly new '40 Chevrolet sedan and the i'm going to guess the truck is a mid-thirties Ford. Not much to go on there unless one is vary familiar with the specific model.

Fro-Joy Ice Cream

I found this 1929 Ad for Froy-Joy Ice cream. Fro-Joy also issued Baseball Cards as premiums. Some, like the Babe Ruth series, are collectibles but they were all in black & white and aren't as popular as the color cards.

P.S. Wheat

The Greene County Examiner-Recorder of Feb. 6, 1941 reported P.S. Wheat and others attended Lodge the previous Tuesday.

The Calm Before The Storm

And is it only me or do others also miss those old drug store fountain drinks? Is there any city in the world without a Coca-Cola sign? Ancient Rome perhaps?

Ah, the Frenetic Pace of Life!

Two seasoned layabouts and a young, saddle-shoed apprentice carry on the favorite local custom -- not doing a whole lot of anything. (In reality, I suppose, they're waiting for an inter-urban bus that will take them to their arduous and character-building jobs in the next town). I wonder if that's a Grand Union food market next door?
