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.

Just Horsing Around: 1963

Just Horsing Around: 1963

My pajama-clad father plays pony to me and my equally pajama-clad brother on a Sunday morning. Though the pony was not an every Sunday activity, lounging about on Sunday mornings was. There was no rush to get dressed on a Sunday morning because we weren’t going anywhere.

Horsey rides

When my husband once mentioned to his doctor that his lower back was hurting more than usual, the doctor asked if he'd been doing anything that might be stressing that area more than usual. My husband mentioned young kids and horsey rides, and wanted confirmation that couldn't be at all bad. The doctor then asked him if he thought getting down on all fours with a couple of cinder blocks piled on the small of his back could possibly be a good thing.
