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.

Sunday Best

Sunday Best

My older brothers and me about 1964, off to Sunday school in Austin, Texas. Can anyone identify cars in fore and background? And if memory serves me I do believe those are all clip on ties. And being the youngest, there was no guessing as to what I would be wearing to church in the coming years. View full size.

It is in fact a 1963 Dodge

It is in fact a 1963 Dodge Dart -- the trim discerns it from a '64 model.

Such cuties!

Of course, that wee fellow is now the handsomest neighbor one could ever have!

The Family Car

'63-64 Dodge Dart; that's a Chevy pickup in the background.
