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.

Goodness, no

This picture brought tears to my eyes.


The guy in the white shirt is probably thinking about how he'd just as soon step on any more dogs as put his right hand anywhere near their mouths. These still-weaning pups all have open mouths, closed eyes. Looks like Mommy fell victim.

Humane Society

I've got a feeling they're not working with the Humane Society, either. I don't even think it was around till the 50's or so.

Either way, it is pretty interesting to see pets pre-Humane Society, I wonder if this was the norm in animal handling?

Awwwwww 2

You know, at first glance, they don't look all that different from the pig.


I'll take 'em.


They look like beagles.


I've got feeling they're not working with the Humane Society.
