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.

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.
