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 Earned Those Gray Hairs

Nice to see a lady not running to her colorist to hide the grey.

She wears those silver strands as a badge of honor for battles won and does not hide them in an attempt to appear younger.

Minnesota Wonderful!

This grouping of photos is extraordinary. And Sally is the star!
Thank you for finding and sharing these wonderful Mid-America, Mid-20th Century views of a more simple and less complicated time and place.

Lucky Dog

I get the feeling that Sally was well-loved in her lifetime, and quite possibly as spoiled as any dog can be. She was certainly included in the family's trips and activities. She even has quite the fashionable collar.

Also, I agree with fixj. I look forward to photos from this set more than any other at Shorpy, and that's saying a lot.

My Dog Sally

When I was a young man, we had a dog named Sally, and she too, was a Dalmatian.

I have to tell you it is like looking at her all over again.

Thank you Dave for posting this family, I feel as though I am a part of their journey through life too, and align myself with fixj, and feel connected through their Sally.

Over the Top

While my few short years following Shorpy have been outstanding, I cannot begin to tell you the pure joy the Minnesota Kodachromes have instilled. I feel as though I know these folks and almost consider them family on some level. While we, here at Shorpy are the beneficiaries of these photos, I will always wonder about the Tuttle family.

Dave, before the arguments begin . . .

Can you maybe take this slide from its mount, examine the sprocket-hole portion of the film, and please let us know who's wearing shoes?

Thanks as always!
