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.

Dogs off duty

The dogs are not interested in the sheep because the sheep are busy grazing, and the shepherd has told the dogs to rest. When the sheep need to be moved, the shepherd will put the dogs back to work.


The latest in modern technology, the Unguided Autonomous Lawn Mower.

Buy two, get three. Eventually. If you buy one of either model.

The only downside, don't try to ride them. Or so the manual is saying. And the guidance software may go haywire sometimes, and they end up somewhere else.

Ewe so grazy

The photo is great, but your caption is legendary!

Not Counting Sheep

The two dogs (collies) don't seem to be interested in the sheep.

Maybe a squirrel got in their view. Just like Doug the dog on UP?
