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.

Today's Top 5

Blame Canada

The Canadian government purchased this site and surrounding lots in 1979, demolishing the Ford Building that same year. It's now the site of Canada's chancery building.

A Canuck?

I note a maple leaf on the back glass, and a plate that shows COL., for British Columbia maybe? He would be a long way from home.

[That's "Dist. Col.," as seen here. -tterrace]

1920s Photography

A photo taken on a bright summer day, and the fellow walking up the street is still blurry. Would love to know the camera setting on this excellent photo.

Stickered

From the look of all those badges, "I Get Around" would be appropriate, too.

What?!

A vintage car pic that wasn’t taken in San Francisco?? Didn't think they existed.
