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.

Mohawk Airlines

Mohawk Airlines

I bought a group of pictures about 7 years ago from a man in Niagara Falls. My grandmother used to take Mohawk out of Newark Airport to visit relatives in Spencerport, NY. View full size.

Convair 580

When I was a kid in the early 80s, Aspen and Frontier Airlines were still flying those LOUD 580's on various routes between Denver and small towns like mine (Montrose, Colorado). I think the 580 was out of passenger service by around 1985.

Sterling Coopers #1 Client

On the show Mad Men the advertising for Mohawk is handled by Sterling Cooper.

Body Surfing

This looks more like the front rows at a concert. There's even a guy body surfing (though it doesn't look like he intended to do it).

My guess is this is a sports team returning home after a big win.
