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.

Melodie: 1979

Melodie: 1979

My mother outside her home in Dallas with our golden retriever Nikki and my dad's 1967 Ford Mustang. View full size.

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]

Royalty

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.

Beautiful

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.

Nikki

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

Awwww

Perfect pic.

A Lucky Man!

Three very beautiful possessions.
