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.
Not as many this time, but a couple of obsolete models, such as the first design of a Kaiser or Frazer, and an early Nash Rambler. Also a good representation of vintage Cal Poly color scheme. Same period, around 1956, this time on Anscochrome. View full size.
