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.

I Wanna Easter Egg: 1950

I Wanna Easter Egg: 1950

Looking at the expression on my face , I have to wonder if anything else ever made me quite as happy as finding that Easter egg 59 years ago. Of course, I was easier to please back then. View full size.

World's cutest Shorpian

This is sweeter than a milk chocolate bunny in a basket full of marshmallow peeps.


I want to thank all the Shorpians for the nice comments, the Easter Bunny for the egg, and my sister for taking the picture.


So cute ... look at his wittle knees!

Thank You

This beautified my day.

Bombs away!

The other day I saw an announcement for the kiddies: one group has organized a helicopter drop of Easter eggs. Look out below! What are they thinking?

Reminds me of the WKRP Thanksgiving episode where Mr Carlson sadly says, "As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly."


Gioia e meraviglia...

(joy and wonder)


I adore this may be one of your best, tterrace, and that's saying quite a bit because you have a rockin' collection.

Happy Easter!

P.S. You should check out -- you look EXACTLY like one of his main characters on the home page--the glasses, the hair, the fashionable trousers, etc.!

Cutie pie

Tterrace, you were a cute kid. What a GREAT expression on your face -- utter bliss.

Weren't we all...
