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.

Coupe de Fille: 1943

Coupe de Fille: 1943

"1943" is all it says on the slide mount of this Kodachrome. But this young lady looks vaguely familiar. Have we seen her before? View full size.

Nine years later

Is she Midcentury Mom: 1952? --

[Yahoo! -tterrace]
[Yes, this is the lady. YOU CAN STOP GUESSING NOW. - Dave]

Lady in Purple?

It looks a little like Kay Fancher from Minnesota.

A Tuttle, perhaps??

Could be the lady in the center of this group shot, 9 years down the road?

[No, but you're getting warm, geographically. Hint: Use the tags. - Dave]

I know nothing about this young lady, but

this dark blue car is definitely a 1939 Dodge Business Coupe. There were many cars in the late '30s that had similar body styles, but that huge round speedometer is a dead giveaway.

10 years later

Is this her, on the guy's knee, in Afterparty: 1953, one of the Linda Kodachromes? --

[Nope! - Dave]
