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.

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?
