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.

Warm picture

Warm and pleasant picture despite of snow...

Passive Solar

I see Hubert is letting the sun clean off his vehicles as I usually did.

Getting around

While it is modern-day 1952, I see by the truck across the street that tire chains appear to be a needed appliance in those climes.

"There's Summer, and Then There's the Other Eleven Months"

This shot failed to place in Minnesota Tourism Bureau's poster contest.

Dog gone it

I'll bet those are Sally's tracks bounding across the foreground.

I was 1 month old at the time

How fast time flies

Brings to mind Currier & Ives

Just as Currier & Ives captured images of a 19th century America, this scene does so in the same way for the 20th.
