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.

Time for booze

Time for booze

From a collection of mostly blurry pictures set I think set at Lake Mead, or up behind Davis Dam in Arizona with friends of my grandparents boating. At first seeing this picture I thought it was my dad, except he was a complete non-drinker, looks too young to be my grandpa by this time (late 1960's)so I'm assuming it's one of their friends. Anyway everyone knows booze and boating go hand in hand. View full size.

Party Time...

Looks like the beginning of a pretty good party. I see a couple bottles of whiskey and what looks like vodka or gin and several coolers.

A good time is guaranteed for all! I was looking to see if this is before the party, during the party or after the party. I am guessing it is before because everything still looks neat, the man is not disheveled and the bottles are full(ish). Also, the shadow looks like it could be in the early afternoon.

Great shot.
