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.

Big girls in small cars

My father bought my brother an electric car for Christmas.... must have been about 1974 or 75, when I was 19. It was lots of fun riding it to the kitchen to get something from the fridge, accompanied by my brother screaming at me to give it back.

I feel a solidarity with these gals.

Stop ! !

That patent leather braking system seems rather effective.

Just You, Just Me

Better Looking

The girls are pretty

... but I really want that little car for my living room!
