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.

Nippy & Natty: 1952

Nippy & Natty: 1952

"Floyd at Folks -- Jan 20 1952." In this latest installment of Minnesota Kodachromes, Floyd shows that warmth and style need not be mutually exclusive. 35mm color slide by Hubert Tuttle. View full size.

Today's Top 5

Before there was Land's End or Eddie Bauer

There was Floyd.

Bomber hat

We still wear those in Minnesota today, especially today.... Usually with the ear flaps down, maybe tied if it's really cold. From the color his may be genuine. They come in fashion colors now. They are very warm.

White stuff

I was 27 when I saw my first snow. It happened here in Tampa in 1977. It was completely gone by 9AM. No snow plow needed.

Re: That Shirt

Maybe he really liked it.

Looks Like

It's time to fire up the Barbeque for a real picnic.


Floyd's got a monogrammed belt buckle.

Sharp-Dressed Man

A fellow could shave with those trouser creases.


The guy is a fashion plate. Where would you find pants like this today? (the shirt's another issue). And the dude's got attitude, a major plus. I AM IMPRESSED. I Love Shorpy!

That shirt

Stylish though he may be, this is the fourth photo in which Floyd is wearing that shirt: twice on January 20 and twice on February 11.
