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.

Today's Top 5

Pepsi jingle

The Bigger and Better along with the 5 cents always bring back the memory of:

Pepsi-Cola hits the spot,
Twelve full ounces, that's a lot,
Twice as much for a nickel, too,
Pepsi-Cola is the drink for you!

Great map

The United States of Pepsi Cola!

Things people don't do anymore

A dozen adult men, just hanging around the soda store.

Brain Trust

Later that day, they founded the Rand Corporation.

Chuck Connors sits on the steps and takes a break.

Huh?

I'd swear that that was Sheriff Taylor on the far left! You sure this picture wasn't taken in Mayberry?
