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

Vincennes 35 chevy

What are the odds the car is a 1935 Chevrolet Master 5 window coupe they are a rare car today because the body was wrapped around a wood frame and the wood rotted away and the car was junked. Here's mine, made into a hotrod.

Vincennes, Indiana

So, why not change the capture Dave? The link proves it is Indiana, isn't it?
Alex, the "state freak" (so not: "steak frites (french fries)" lol

That's Vincennes, INDIANA

The Old Cathedral was recently restored (at great expense) and looks fabulous!

My wife and I would have been married in that church had it not been getting its previous painting in January of 1971.

This is Joe Manning. The Old Cathedral still stands. See all about this church and parish here.
