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.

Ok, Here's What We'll Do

said the tall one.

"Manny, you keep watch, Billy you distract them with a cute smile.

Crybaby, you make some noise to put them off the scent.

Cecil, you help the others over the top. Cecil? Cecil? Are you sleeping again? Is he sleeping again?

Ok, when we go, wake him up, and remember everyone, crawl, crawl as fast as you can.

Stay safe out there."

The Hair Club

The 2 baldies in the basket, front right, appear to be twins.

Romulus and Remus

and Manny, Moe & Jack and Curly, Larry & Moe (that's TWO Moes, not Moeses.)

Children and children first

This may have been the Greatest Generation's earliest lifeboat drill.

I'm bustin' out

I'm bustin' out of here, see... You in with me?
