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.

Friendly couples: 1930s

Friendly couples: 1930s

Another from my grandmother's photo album, no names on the back of the photo, but the gal on the right looks like my grandmother. I'm not sure who the others are, but I know the guy with his arm around her is not grandpa. This was likely taken around the time she graduated Hollywood High School in 1933. View full size.

Dressed for the roadster

Whoever that guy with your maybe-grandma is, he's one sharp dude. I'm going to have to assume that's his snappy roadster down at the curb. As for the when, the sedan on the other side of the street is a body style you didn't see until the 1935-6 model year for most cars.

SHORPY HISTORICAL PHOTO ARCHIVE | History in HD is a vintage photo archive featuring thousands of high-definition images from the 1850s to 1960s. (Available as fine-art prints from the Shorpy Archive.) The site is named after Shorpy Higginbotham, a teenage coal miner who lived 100 years ago.
