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.

Gem County: 1939

Gem County: 1939

October 1939. Gem County, Idaho. "Former Jackknife saloon and stagecoach tavern, now the temporary home of a member of the Ola self-help sawmill co-op. Until 1914 the stagecoach used to stop here to change horses and for the refreshment of travelers." Photo by Dorothea Lange. View full size.

Ada County

I live in the county next door (Ada). This area is still pretty.

Gem County

I love the formal quality of the gate that strives at being an official portal to this domain, with the wispy transparency of the "wall" (fence) around it...

Beautiful picture

This is a splendid example of why I like to check out shorpy photos...very haunting and yet at the same time I can't help but wonder at the history that is woven into this place. I can picture the stage coach roaring up to the front door, passengers getting off to wet their whistles and dusting off the dirt from their trip, maybe making a trip out back to the outhouse before the next departure...wonderful memories.
