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

Quail and potatoes?

I certainly hope he was planning to have lots of people over for dinner and didn't just kill all those beautiful birds for the fun of it!


First I have ever seen thick soled dress shoes back from the 1920s. Must have been a backwoods New Zealand thing I suppose?


If I can't hit the Bullseye while blindfolded you can pick any prize from the top row.

A question of standpoint.

I know people who would want to quail looking at those poor little tweety-birds having been nailed to a barn wall.

Me, I am wondering what they tasted like. Haven't had the chance to try that particular type of bird yet.

And I have an inkling that those poor little tweety-birds might be an invasive pest under the long white cloud anyway.

Who, indeed?

The dogs, most likely!

Are you sure

this isn't Indiana Jones on a hunting spree?
