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.

Protest March 1966

Protest March 1966

San Francisco, 1966. International Days of Protest march on Market St. between Powell & Mason. Slide mount is dated August. Is the theater marquee a comment? The Woolworths at Powell & Market is now The Gap. The near buildings along Market are all gone, the area now occupied by Hallidie Plaza. I took this on 35mm Kodachrome. View full size.

March in August

According to the Virtual Museum of the City of San Francisco's website, a Vietnam War peace march up Market Street took place August 6, 1966.

Weird Wicked World

It's not much help dating this, but IMDB lists a film of that name released in West Germany on July 3, 1964. It was apparently one of many Mondo Cane knockoffs.
