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.

What a beautiful pair!

About my mom's age

This young girl looks about the age my mom was in 1939. She too is a Missouri farmer's daughter. I'm reminded of a cute sticker I saw at a local farm stand in New Hampshire which reads, "no farms, no farm girls"

Same ears, too

But that can be hidden in the hairstyle of the day in a few more years.

I hope that is licorice in her mouth. And not some other dark colored chewable.

What a little sweetheart.

She has her Daddy's eyes. I'll bet that in a few more years she'll have her Daddy's teeth, too.
