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.

Perhaps they're sad

because someone killed Kenny?

Santa Claus is coming

to The Town of Grumpy Resting Faces.

Joy to the world?

What a bunch of grumpy looking people, especially for not even cracking a smile at this happy creation of a holiday-festooned sleigh holding irresistibly cute twins, pulled by an apparently annoyed dog and his equally p.o.'d master. One would expect at least a few cheerful faces, being it was such a clever concept for a mid-winter carnival but there must have been something that sucked the joy out of whatever the plan originally was. What could have 'grinched-up' this sour-faced group?

[It was really cold and they had to just stand there waiting for the picture to be taken? -tterrace]

A Good Time was had by None

Some "carnival." I can't find even the hint of a smile in this photo.
