About the Photos

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.

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.

Gratitude

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

Awwwwww

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)

GLEE!

I adore this picture...it 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 williamjoyce.com -- 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.
