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.

Today's Top 5

Still a high-class place.

The Coral Casino is located in a pretty ritzy part of Santa Barbara, close to the five-star Biltmore Hotel.

Lana Turner

She is featured in a lot of photos in the Shorpy archive! And in 1940, she was a brunette.


Everyone love Cracker Jacks. Wonder what her prize was.

Money Bags

Stella McCartney has a wooden accordion clutch bag with a similar look (only smaller) that sells for over $2,000. Wonder what something like that went for in the 1950s?


Two glasses of milk close to being accidentally knocked into the pool water. Even royalty is careless in recognizing all glass is off limits near a swimming pool.
