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.

Black and White in Color

In 1964, our 21-inch Motorola was 12 years old. The next year we got color TV.

Caption correction

"12-inch Motorola" should read "21-inch Motorola" Thanks.

[Done. You can also edit your own posts after they're published. Click on the title and then on the Edit tab. One other helpful hint for picture-posters: When embedding links in your caption text using href tags, URLs need to be enclosed in quotes, or else all kinds of terrible things can happen. Right: a href="http://www.google.com" ... Wrong: a href=http://www.google.com. This is a general coding rule and applies to any web site. Leave off the quotes and, depending on the browser used to view the text, the link may not work or the layout of the entire page gets screwed up. And finally, the tags for making italics and bold type are em for italics and strong for bold. i and b are not valid xhtml. - Dave]
