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.

Gravel stucco

That ugly stuff has been around longer than I thought!

1937 Ford Model 74 at the curb

The Standard models with painted grilles ranged from $529 for a coupe to $690 for a station wagon with glass windows. Add about $80 for a radio, $40 for a heater, and ? for whitewall tires. Most people were happy with blackwalls, easier to keep clean.

And there she is right now

I believe that is in fact Miss Grundy (Archie's teacher) going into the style shop to have a makeover. Who would of thunk it?
