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.

Can we get a closeup of the boxes on the shelf above the blurry boy in the foreground?


So, the guys are always commenting on the hot girls, well, here's turnabout!

The guy looking at the camera is HOT. With a face like that, he'd never want for a date in any period!

Too bad I missed him!

Interesting details

Like the wine bottle on the left of the picture! This is my kind of camp!

Postcard from Camp

Hello muddah, hello faddah
Here I am at Camp Granada
Camp is very entertaining
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.

- Allan Sherman, "Camp Granada"
