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.

When in Rome

This shot reminds me of tourists in Rome getting their pictures taken at the Acropolis.

[Parthenon sequitur. - Dave]

Man of Letters

As a retired journeyman sign painter, I can appreciate the great lettering on the van. I've done plenty of them in my lifetime career. It's not as easy as it looks. The key is uniformity.

I Love Shorpy

We get Hi-Def pics for free. But the common folk have to search Ebay and pay $160 for an old cardboard pic.

Spirit of the Day

I love that they drove over and wanted their picture before the monument, completed four years earlier. I love that they are there together, equal for a moment across occupation and race, reflecting on the great man and America's great accomplishment in building that memorial.

Modern truck

That's the most up-to-date 1926 truck I've seen yet on this site. The wheels are of the type that's still in use today.


Hey, look at that tiny little guy walking on the roof of the truck! Someone call Arthur Conan Doyle!

Intercity removals

We also rent thugs and goons.
