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.

My Pop, the Hunter

My Pop, the Hunter

This image of my Pop was taken in the early 1950's. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, archery, marksman and a master skydiver and pilot.

1956 Ford Fairlane

Fairlane models were made from 1955 through 1970. The zigzag chrome on the side tells me 1956.

[This is a 1955 non-Fairlane Ford. The script on the trunk says "Fordomatic." - Dave] I see what your saying Dave. Thanks for catching this. I drop the ball and you pick it up.

My dad too!

He brought our deer home on the back of a '61 Chevy Belair.
