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.

Indeed

Having grown up on a dirt road between a chicken and a pig farm I am aware of its brutal realities. What I find amazing is the likelihood of a piglet and a cat sharing a meal together.

.38 Special

I find it interesting to note the simplicity of his pistol as compared to the paramilitary 16-shot automatics and tons of other gear the police strap on today.

[I'm pretty sure he's unarmed. - Dave]

Ah, the brutal realities of farm life.

All those hipsters who think they can handle owning a farm because they managed to grow an herb garden successfully need to see this.
