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.

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.
