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.

In Her Sunday Best: 1962

In Her Sunday Best: 1962

My wife's aunt, June O'Neill, in her Sunday best, approximately 1962. Taken in her front yard in the River Park neighborhood in Sacramento, California. We now live in this house; the tree in the background is over 75 feet high now. View full size.

Right Shoulder, Car!

That looks to me like a 1956 Buick behind the lady. Hard to tell the exact model.

What a treat

To see River Park when it was "new." I was a 9-year-old in Old Land Park (right next to Taylor's Market, although I think it may have still been a Safeway back then) in 1962, and we already had big trees.

The car in the picture

Is a 1956 Pontiac.
