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.

Watkins Glen Parking: 1970

Watkins Glen Parking: 1970

This is part of the parking paddock at Watkins Glen on CanAm weekend, 1970. Lots of American and British/European classics, all collectible today. In the background is the in-field weekend camping area, much of it tents and pickup camper caps then. Was it Watkins Glen or Mosport that the infield was known as "The Swamp" for it's "spirited" nighttime fun? View full size.

Poor Quality Plumbing

In just ten short years the public restrooms at "the Glen" would all change from functional to decorative.. In an attempt to provide a clean fresh smell, someone had dropped several cases of hockey puck sized mints all over the facilities. Neatly lettered graffiti on one inside wall proclaimed.. "Don't eat the mints"
