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.

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?"
