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 Night at the Round Table: 1967

A Night at the Round Table: 1967

1967. Susie and Oliver Baugher relaxing in their Waynesboro, Virginia, home. Their house was genuine mid-century modern but their style and grace were from another era. The perfect hosts, they always made you feel good about yourself (style and grace Rule 1). Susie lived to be 100. View full size.

Yes, one and the same.

It's great to see your comment. Friends and people in the business called him C.O. I remember the Chevy that was completely covered in license plates. And yes, it was probably another one of his marketing tools that led to a sale!

I knew Mr. Baugher

Is this gentleman also known as Claude Baugher, the Chevrolet dealer? Everybody called him "CO". Maybe Oliver was his brother? I knew C.O. in the mid to late 60's and visited in Waynesboro. C.O. collected early Virginia license plates and had them plastered all over the exterior of a 1967 Chevy in order to attract attention to his hobby (which I shared, and still do). It probably also sold a car or two!
