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.

Driving Ms. Crazy: 1968

Driving Ms. Crazy: 1968

1968. Comedian Joan Rivers at Rockefeller Center in New York. Photo by John Shearer for the Look magazine article "Rivers Delivers." View full size.


Looks like a 1966 Cadillac Limousine. Made during a time when a limo didn't look like it was squeezed out of a sausage maker.

[The car is a 1967 Cadillac Fleetwood Series 75 Sedan -- without the glass partition of the Series 75 Limousine. - Dave]


That no one has tried to guess the make and model of the sedan she's taking that 'scary' ride in. Anyone?


She looks absolutely terrified.

But I hope this photo can be seen by Mad Men's costume designer Janie Bryant.

Why so serious?

She looks like she's en route to a firing squad.

No way is that Joan Rivers

Not unless she's had massive amounts of Plastic Surgery in the last 45 years.


She was a good looking girl and later an attractive woman. Now, in her dotage, she looks like a cartoon character.

Crazy like a Fox!

This gal is pushing her 80s and that's amazing! Rivers is now working with her daughter and they're going strong. We should commend such vim & vinegar!


I had no idea there was a day when she DIDN'T scare the children.
