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.

All Are Welcome: 1923

December 29, 1923. "Horse Christmas party, Animal Rescue League." Maybe a few days late for a Christmas party, but then again here we are showing up 92 years after the fact. National Photo Company Collection glass negative. View full size.

I wonder if there was a connection between Droop's and the Animal Rescue League, or maybe just a worker at the league knew where to go to get some nice wooden boxes.


Is the dinner for the horses, or are the horses the dinner? I'm assuming [hoping] it's the former rather than the latter.

Free Dinner

I would like my horse grilled medium rare with a side of french fries.
