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 would Teacher have to say about "bumpber"? - Dave]


That’s no dude. And, she appears to be sitting on the bumper of a Lincoln Zephyr. Can we get a Pretty Girls tag, pretty please?

["Dude" applied to any paying guest at the ranch; dudes of both sexes could take part in ranch work. -tterrace]

Brand Identity is everything.
