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.

Tyke on Trike: 1951

Tyke on Trike: 1951

"Linda - Nov 1951." Last seen here, Linda is now a young lady of 4, old enough to drive. From a batch of 200 Kodachrome slides I got on eBay. View full size.

Today's Top 5


Hey, leave poor Linda alone! Some of us just don't photograph well.

Or she just may be dreading going back inside to face another teeny tiny slice of birthday cake.

Moebius Syndrome

Any slide in that eBay batch that can prove otherwise? That blank, disengaged look from that tyke in all the photos so far seem really unnatural.

When Evening Shadows Start to Fall

Linda casts a long one.
