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.

Board Games

There was a popular music AM radio station in and around NYC for many years, WNEW. The DJs were pretty cool for the Era. Martin Block and his "Make Believe Ballroom", Art Ford and "The Milkman's Matinee" were 2 of my favorites. There were two others that also come to mind. William B Williams who called Frank Sinatra the Chairman Of The Board. The other guy, Al (Jazzbo) Collins, said if Sinatra was the Chairman, Nat Cole was the whole Board.

I can hear it now

"Nat, the next time you do Route 66, can you weave the Chevy brand into the lyrics?"

Love the LOOK photos

Thanks Dave and the Shorpy gang! I've really enjoyed the LOOK set and now posted is one of my life long favorite singers.
