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.

Newsy Parker: 1935

On Shorpy:
Today's Top 5


My grandmother lived in DC from 1935 until 1975. She worked at the Pentagon for a number of years. Back in the day, this must have been a great place to live / work.

If only in color

I would love to see this photo in color. This lady's attire is so sharp! What a contrast to the dustbowl photos of the same time.

Pretty banged-up car

A lot of dents (front end and running board) for a car that's only a year or two old. No wonder it's hard to find straight fenders 80 years later.

Or somebody's mother

My mom would have been 22 in 1935.

Unless looks deceive,

she ought to be leaning on at least an Auburn, not that Ford.
