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.

No Zonks Here

Will it be Door Number 1, Door Number 2, or Door Number 3?

I don't care, Monty. Let's Make a Deal.

Who are the three stage props?

Checking out the TV series (which I have zero recollection of as a kid) on IMDb and Wikipedia I cannot see anything about who the three fairly familiar looking women are in the pub shots.

Well, the first photo helps a little better than this one but any ID info anyone?

It's all about that bass

Even in the Sixties.


Newton Minow's vast wasteland is only half-vast in this shot, since most of it is a painted backdrop.

Juicy Fruit

Seeing this photo reminds me that I have to pick up some pears at the market today.


Is it possible to view this short-lived show anywhere? Could not find it on YouTube.
