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.

Cake or Pie?

Cake or Pie?

"Amy Frandle -- 2 March 1952." The latest episode of Minnesota Kodachromes takes place at the kitchen table. The cake looks delicious, but we'll start with a slice of that cherry pie, please. 35mm color slide by Hubert Tuttle. View full size.

Amy's birthday

I must have missed this when it was posted, but when I stumbled upon it, I did some research and found out the following:
Amy Frandle
Blue Earth, Faribault County, Minnesota
Born: March 2, 1902 Died: September 1, 1977
So, it was Amy Frandle's 50th birthday; she was to live another 25 years and 6 months. Hopefully, she will have had a happy life!


NICE oil cloth tablecloth. Useful stuff, oil cloth, nicer than vinyl.


I think that is a Mirro-matic percolator. I've had one for over ten years, and it makes wonderful coffee (if you like percolated coffee).

The Old Math

Algebra made simple:

Cake, please.....

And please make sure I get lots of those hard, preformed sugar daisies.

Cake or pie?

The only correct answer to that question is, "YES!"


Use the leftover wall paint on tin cans then plant geraniums in them.

More Pie Please

Mmmm I'll have another slice of pecan pie -- and spread on some Skippy for good measure!
