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.

Spying San Antonio addresses

I can make out business names and addresses: Elizondo Grocery Store at 1826 Nogalitos, and California Grocery & Market at 909 Ripford (which is, curiously, smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood). That would put this domicile in the neighborhood just southeast of I-35 and I-10.


Are they really, really, REALLY sure it's March?

The original "Wall"

It looks a lot like my Facebook timeline.

Purr-fect Transportation!

That's the C&O's Chessie the cat and her kittens under the Easter bunny on the right.


This is a very interesting and varied collage of diverse items that apparently were of great importance to somebody and probably brought them personal happiness. Who are we to judge?
