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.

My second grade class at James Buchanan Elementary School, Levittown Pennsylvania, spring 1962. Teacher is Shayndel Sacks (which may have had a different spelling. Her first name was pronounced Shane-Dell, and her last name could have been spelled Sachs). I am the girl seated next to her, wearing the blue headband. At least a third of these same children were in my first grade class. View full size.
