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.

Wheels

That's what bicycles were commonly called in those days. We'd laugh in the mid-50's when our elderly principal Miss Nina at Sanger Avenue Elementary in Waco, Texas would talk to us about how to ride our wheels safely and to park them properly in the wheel rack the school provided. She called windows "window lights", too.

Dime for a Shine

I'm guessing that is a covered shoe shine stand on N. 7th Street at the extreme left of the photo?

I was in the brick building just beyond it a couple weeks back. It now houses an Irish Pub called Siamsa.

Some Similarities

That's the Fulmer Hotel on your left in the original picture. We find ourselves at 7th and Main. The stone building has been expanded but retains much of the original features.
