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.

Lucy and Lucie: 1952

Thanks Shorpy!

For the beautiful Mother's Day tribute!
Your site is such a marvelous respite from our current day stresses.

Seek out the Lucy and Desi home movies

They are are available for sale or elsewhere for free on the web on YouTube. When I saw the show originally on PBS, hosted and narrated by Lucie Arnaz, I was quite emotional. There are scenes in the 1940s and 50s in color as Lucy and Desi hosted parties and BBQs at their 5 acre ranch home out in the San Fernando Valley; just off Devonshire in Chatsworth, I think. The area is all occupied by tract homes now. The collection features Lucy and Desi having what appears to be a great time, wisecracking and messing around with other Hollywood types; alas all in silence.

The red

Lucy was always a true beauty in my mind, funny and sexy at the same time. This picture seems to show her sensitive side. A truly great photographic moment.
