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.

Holiday Punch: 1954

Holiday Punch: 1954

        "Come into the kitchen and I'll make you a smoothie."

October 1954. "Actress Judy Holliday posed with a large 'vegetable man' designed by Federico Pallavicini." Kodachrome by Milton H. Greene for the Look magazine assignment "Holiday Punch -- Judy Holliday." View full size.

 

A Solid Gold Cadillac

Of course. What else would she be driving?

Easy to Make!

Let's see how long it takes for Mr. Vegetable Man to show up on Pinterest.

Cabbage Patch Doll 1.0

Not quite as cute as the 1980s version.

I bet he's been "stalking" her for some time, though!

Oh Judy, Judy, Judy

Lettuce run away together!

Ah Judy Holliday!

A delightful and talented actress, with an IQ of 172.

Prototype

Sales numbers for the Cabbage Field Fred doll were decidedly poor in 1954.

She looks well to do

What do you suppose she's driving?
