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.

Red Delicious: 1954

From around 1954, somewhere in New England, comes this unlabeled slide in our "Linda" series of Kodachromes found on eBay. The weather is crisp and so are the apples! View full size.

 

Hitchcock color

With those saturated colors, this easily could be on the set of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Trouble With Harry."

First they made us pick 'em and now we have to eat 'em too.

Who Doesn't Love Apple Picking?

The little girl in the wheelbarrow seems to be enjoying her apples.

In 1954, I was 6 years old when I went apple picking up near Rome, New York. Apple picking in the fall became a yearly ritual for my two daughters, and now, being a grandfather, I revel in my annual fall apple/pumpkin picking trips with my two granddaughters.

Maybe that's how the expression "American as apple pie" got started.

Camp Norway.

Apparently it was located on Lake Fairlee in Vermont.

There's a Facebook page for friends of Camp Norway, maybe Linda is there!
