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.

Not just a Holcomb & Hoke . . .

The Standard Butter-Kist Popcorn Machine

Holcomb & Hoke Model No. 3F

Circa 1927

Original Cost: $1250.00

This gas-fired popper with attached peanut roaster still relies on electricity for mechanical operation and lighting. The optional "Fountain of Corn" in the lower cabinet utilizes a blower to keep the corn in constant motion.

post edited because I was incorrect.
