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.

Hemmings Blog grabbed your photo (mentioning your and Shorpy's names) providing information about the city where Joseph F. Stein had his Cadillac-Studebaker dealership: in Asbury Park, New Jersey, located on Main Street between Monroe and Sewall avenues.

Studebaker noses

Those appear to be 1951 Studebakers. Same bullet nose as 1950, but part of its outer chrome ring was painted over for 1951, making it look narrower.
