About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

The ache that never quite dies

My big boy, Max, was buried in the Bide-a-Wee cemetery on Long Island, NY. The same place Nixon's 'Checkers' is buried. I would rather have him back, than enjoy his celebrity burial status. Forty years and I still miss him.

Through the ages

Timeless. In classical Egypt when the cat of a household died, the family shaved their eyebrows as a sign of mourning. As someone who has buried more than one four-footed friend myself, I salute those who mourned the death of this pet and insured that she would be remembered.

Miss Fudge

This reminds me that I'm so nearly to see my little dear dog gone forever and always. I'll never forget her, she's nearly more important than my life.. I want to thank Shorpy to show me life in this wonderfull context. I'm looking every single photo, and I love every single one. I love this page.
