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.

Run that plate

8J 47 04 -- When I see these cars bearing old license plates I wonder if the California motor vehicle department records go back far enough to tell you who the registered owner was in 1935?

Transverse Injun

That front bumper. Chief Pontiac. Spectacular.

Pontiacs and Prince Albert

Ha! Methinks Mr. Harrison is a pipe smoker.

Reflections of yesterday.

The building across the street is still there:
