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.
Vintage photos of:
Two fellows enjoying Fitgers Beer from conetop style cans. They look to be in a trailer, camper or something similar. Why the one fellow is wearing a tie is a mystery, but he sure seems happy to down a beer. Fitgers was a large regional brewery in Duluth, MN. They lasted until 1972. The conetop cans in the picture were from around 1960 I'd guess. View full size.
