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.

Today's Top 5

Little horn

That's a WWI Trench bugle on the floor. The US government issued a contract for these in April 1917. My grandfather was an ambulance driver in the Great War and brought one back when he came home.

Wife Barbara

She sure doesn't look happy. They toughed it out for another ten years until the divorce.

Happy Wife, Happy Life

According to the Internet wife Barbara remains with Andy for another 10 years. Perhaps her sour expression here reflects her wondering how the untidy house will show in the magazine.

Candid Camera

She looks a bit put out or something.
