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.

Charlie Brown's Sister Sally

I always wondered what inspired that character's hairstyle. I will wonder no more!

Forget a bad hair DAY, this is a bad hair life.

Their parents sure gave those girls a stupid hairstyle. It is kind of a Kewpie doll meets Mohawk gone amok.

Not quite twins

The Ellis Island Ship Database shows a a 6-year-old Veronica Gracie and a 5-year-old Miriam Gracie arriving from Rio on the Aeolus in March 1922, accompanied by a 30-year-old Samuel Gracie and 27-year-old Miriam Gracie. Veronica does have that older-sister look.

[Samuel de Sousa Leao Gracie was the charge d'affaires (first secretary) of the Brazilian Embassy. - Dave]

What A Pair

I assume they're twins. They are delightful.
