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.

Fort Walton Beach

Fort Walton Beach

At my grandfather's house playing with my '66 Mustang and my C-2 'Vette in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.

The missing part of the image

That empty spot might be part of the 25th exposure on a 24 exposure roll. I got that a lot when I was a kid in the fifties with my first 35mm camera.

[The "empty spot" is the slide mount. - Dave]

Poor scanning skills

Is that why it does that sometimes? Thank you, I will try that


Fort Walton Foy

Is this missing part of the image because the slide got put in the scanner the wrong way? Try turning it 90 degrees. Love the red socks.
