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.

Vintage photos of:
My great-grandfather on my father's side of the family on the left holding the map, not sure who the person is. This is from a series of pictures when my grandmother was about 6 or 7 and the family went on a road trip to Yellowstone from Burley, Idaho, around 1920. Proves that even back in the early days of motoring, men always refused to ask for directions from strangers, or maybe great-grandpa here is breaking that rule.
