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.

Everything Old is New Again.

Love the outfit. Everything she is wearing from her hat, handbag to the shoes would be stylish today.

This could be the one

A 1923 A-Deusenberg Phaeton. Shelbyville, Tennessee, June 1012.

Looks like ...

... a 1925 Duesenberg Model A Phaeton.

Fast car

Mae has the ultimate vehicle. Too bad she is not in it and speeding away from this unflattering portrait.
