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.

Thru the tree, Yosemite

Thru the tree, Yosemite

More from the Yosemite vacation, driving the ol' Ford thru the tree tunnel. I thought this was at a different park, but I guess this is/was in Yosemite. View full size.

Licensed to Thrill

Great old car photo taken in 1946 or 1947.
The 1947 California license plate under its headlight tells all.

Wawona again

This time it's the Wawona Tunnel Tree which, appropriately enough, you could reach via the Wawona Tunnel in that other shot of yours. It was still standing in 1962 when I took my picture, but as I point out, you can't get shots like these anymore.
