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.

Damn! There's a very good chance that I'm the Scout with the 3051 displayed on his shoulder.

I lived on Mather AFB outside Sacramento in 1955/56, plus-minus a few months, and I remember going to a TV station with our Cub Scout troop. I've no recollection of meeting a princess, but I do distinctly recall speaking on-camera about the Disney comics equivalent of the Cub Scouts, the "Junior Woodchucks", whose only identified members, IIRC, were Donald Duck's nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie. I've never forgotten this, so I jumped out of my chair when I saw my spittin' image in this photo.

Shorpy Rules!!
