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.

A Wonderful Life

Thanks JOHNNYYUMA for that wonderful peek into a WONDERFUL LIFE.

Just think of all the lives touched by this wonderful young lady.

Strange fact is that my wife was a teacher (3rd grade) for almost the same amount of time as this young lady was soon to be.

Shorpy does it again, my eyes are getting a little wet around the edges.

And now we care.

Time envy

What an adorable corn-fed little cherub.

And I want her watch!

The Rest of the Story

Thanks for linking us to the other 75 years of her useful, adventurous, and beautiful life. God rest her soul.

14 and a half years old

That's how young this woman is. I wonder about that mark on her left elbow: today it would be a tattoo (I see a friendly crocodile), but it must be a smudge (see right forearm). Happy holidays, fellow Shorpy followers, plus special gratitude of the season to Dave and tterrace for providing this great online resource.

Rest in Peace

Lived a nice life.

Margaret Lou 1925 - 2016
