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.

Almost as cute as the cats

However, this photo proves that dogs aren't as smart as cats: the doggy mom is using the sewing machine backwards.

Who Let the Dogs In?

Please bring back the kittens.

Good baby

Can sleep through anything.


All you posters griping about the kittens, I hope you're happy! You have to admit, though -- that little puppy in the crib IS adorable!

Evil Shorpy

Y'all really are trying to make me crazy with this stuff. Go ahead: admit it.
