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.

Such a cutie!

That little guy just looks so sweet!

Now that I reflect upon it

There's almost enough detail in the hubcap to see Marion herself. But not quite.

I think I know that kid

Isn't that the Mitchell boy?

That kid

Could have been the model for Dennis the Menace.

I want

that toy truck!

Graphic traffic

The package design for Traffic Motor Oil seems very modern, it would look great on a tee shirt!$_35.JPG


I can't I.D. the trailer, but the truck the lad is playing with is a Structo, made in Freeport IL.
