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.

I was an SOB

Back in the 1960s my Dad used his influence to get me a summer job with an industrial construction company. I learned from my co-workers I was an SOB (Son of a Bigshot). I delivered materials and tools to chemical plants around the state as in Union Carbide, Allied Chemical, Merck, GAF, American Cyanamid, Hoffman-LaRoche, and others I was advised by the veterans to arrive at Hoffman-LaRoche around lunch time when the female office workers exited their buildings and walked to lunch. It was a darn good suggestion.
