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.

Crawford Notch: 1959

Crawford Notch: 1959

Crawford Notch, New Hampshire, 1959. This was taken by Dad during a stop on our day-long drive from Bedford, Quebec to Sebago Lake State Park in Maine, where we spent a few weeks for a number of summers camping for our family summer vacation. Lots to see in this one, including the blurry TR-3 speeding out of view to the left of the picture. View full size.

Modern Day

I was just here on Monday October 6th 2014. Not much has changed except for the cars, no more sign and clothing. Crawford Notch is one of my favorite places to be… My happy place!

Great car

My father bought a '56 De Soto when I was a teenager. Big, smooth and very stylish. He drove it for over 10 years, great memories.

1956 DeSoto Firedome

On the far right. My dad had a gray and white '56 Chrysler, and my heart skipped a bit when I saw this picture.

Beautiful photos!

I love how the colors have not faded a bit. Any more of this trip?
