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.

Legend of the Snowman: 1957

Legend of the Snowman: 1957

From the Linda Kodachromes, circa 1957, comes this unlabeled slide of posters for the school Christmas play on December 16, so get your tickets soon. WHS is, as near as we can figure, Whitefield High School in New Hampshire. View full size.

Legend of Linda

Sorry for the four year bump, but my husband is from a small town in New Hampshire and many of the Linda images remind me of his family, past and present. Being from a big city (Detroit) myself, I'm a little obsessed with the history and genealogy of NH small towns, so I'm intrigued by the Linda mystery.

Anywhoo, I found another WHS in New Hampshire that was operating as a WHS (as opposed to Winnacunnet High School, which was Hampton Academy until 1959) in 1957 -- Woodsville High School.

Merry Christmas! Where's the antique store?

I would kill for the flame grain mahogany desk that Santa's residing on!
