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.

Birthday Party

Birthday Party

This is a photo of my sister Becky (the little girl far left) at her birthday party; I'm unsure of the year. I love how Mom is either spying on the goings on, or hiding from the camera! A note about the artwork on the wall: my Dad was a graphic designer, and that piece is an example of his work. Sadly, it was lost in a move many years ago. View full size.

Beauty

Your Mom & Sister were beautiful women (or girl in one case). Thanks for the photos.

She was outnumbered!

Two of the boys were my brothers...I wasn't born until 1963. They were living at Edwards AFB at the time...my dad was in the Air Force, and most of the neighbor kids were boys.

[So the year this was taken was probably . . . - tterrace]

Sure it was Becky's BD?

It's a little girl's birthday party, and all nine of the guests are boys?
