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.

Wily coyote

While growing up in Wyoming my sister and I often stayed with our aunt and uncle during the summer. On one of these visits, sometime during WW2, we drove past a huge pile (it seemed as big as our car) of coyote carcasses, shot by a local rancher. Uou could smell them for a mile. Now sixty years later and in California with coyotes nightly roaming through our yard and neighborhood I think that the wily coyote will be in North America long after we are gone.
