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.

Golfer Dad: 1966

Golfer Dad: 1966

Here's my dad in 1966, the year I was born. I have no comment for this Kodachrome slide. Caption ideas welcome. View full size.

F's and A's

Leather shoes (be they golf or otherwise and long socks with shorts; that's an F. Good thing the socks were not dark-dress, or that F would be accompanied by a jail sentence.

The clothes probably fit when they were purchased. Another F, because of the outcry for new ones.

The cap is at a jaunty angle (currently favored by rappers among others) but not on purpose. D-.

I'm no advocate of skin cancer, but keep these so-pale-they-are-nearly-clear legs should be viewed by significant others only. F.

But, if he was a great dad, A++++++, and that's all that really matters.

Call Me Chip

I sure did dress like that, except in an ironic sense. I also sported long sideburns like the ones he grew when my older sisters convinced him to do so when they were fasionable in the 70's (but he kept them long after they were on the out).

Chip Off the Old

So, did you grow up to dress like your dad?

No shortage of comments
