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.

Not a '67 Mustang

That Mustang is not a '67. It's either a '64, '65 or '66. Beautiful car, though. Wish I still had my '65.

[The design of the rear panel side scoops is unique to the 1967 models. -tterrace]


Mom looks like Lady Diana Spencer.

Lots Of Love In This Photo

You almost feel like you could reach into the screen and grab some of the love displayed here between Mom and faithful dog Nikki. Truly a superb photograph.

Even The Mustang

is Ford's classiest color, "Vintage Burgundy."

Beautiful. Gorgeous!

Melodie and Niki, too.

Could be an oil painting

Classic composition!

Thanks for posting.


The look of love is wonderful between Melodie and her dog. The devotion in the look of the dog is so sweet. Great photo!!

What part of town?

What part of Dallas did you grow up in? I grew up in Lakewood and East Dallas. A great picture - your dad must have been proud.


You can see, he's just soaking it all in. Beautiful picture. Beautiful woman, car, faithful dog, flowers surround the white porch...sigh...


Perfect pic.
