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.

Happy Easter Son: 1952

Happy Easter Son: 1952

"Easter 1952" is the label on this 35mm Kodachrome slide from Michigan by way of eBay. Our young man, last seen the previous Christmas, seems to have gotten an Easter pail rather than the traditional basket. View full size.

Today's Top 5

Man's BFF

All they ask of you is food,water and a pat on the head whenever you can spare a moment. And they're always glad to see you when you walk through the front door. You can't always say that about the humans in your life.

Let's go through the list

High and tight kids haircut? Check. Bib overalls with t-shirt (short or long)? Check. Vinal seat cushions? Check. Threat of nuclear war and school duck-and-cover exercises? Check. Still better than some of today's issues? Check again. Still a good time to be a kid.

Ohio Artifact

The sand pail was made by Ohio Art, #5/102. It's little girls chasing ducks.

Research was done using eBay, where one is currently listed for an astronomical price.

The Wide-Eyed Dog

Is waiting for the other shoe to drop.
