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.

Sider and Appels: 1935

Sider and Appels: 1935

October 1935. "A cider and apple stand on the Lee Highway, Shenandoah National Park, Virginia." View full size. 35mm nitrate negative by Arthur Rothstein.

 

Appels and Oranges

OK, it cracks me up that on the left we have Appels and Sider and on the right it's spelled correctly.

Comment s'appelle t'elle?

Comment s'appelle t'elle? Mais surment, elle s'appelle "appel".

Appel Sider

Speaking of fermentation, you know there was a distilled version of cider somewhere close by.

Appel Sider

Actually that spelling makes much more sense.

Appel Sider

This photo brought to mind an old limerick (slightly modified):

A girl from Virginia's east side
Ate a mess of green appels and died.
While her friends all lamented,
The appels fermented,
And made sider inside her inside.
