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.

VINTAGRAPH • WPA • WWII • THE ARTIST'S GARDEN BY CLAUDE MONET

Zion: 1971

Zion: 1971

My father and his sister traveled to Illinois from California with my great grandparents for my grandpa's wedding. This was taken on the trip back to Los Angeles through Zion National Park. My dad wishes the camera, a Kodak Brownie, could have caught the car in focus but I think it's cool like it is. View full size.

Photography time lapse

I find it funny that when this photo was taken, the photographer probably thought, "shoot, I've got this stupid car in there." But given time, the car is what makes this photo interesting. It gives it personality and a place, of which it wouldn't have without the car.

It's all a blur

The Mustang at speed is what makes this photo cool.

Zoom!

The Ford Mustang has such distinctive lines, that even when it's blurry like this, it's not difficult to recognize. I'm glad metallic blue paint is no longer popular. There was something about it that I always thought looked tacky.

1967 Mustang?

Nice photo--I like the blurring myself. I'll guess the car is a 1967 Mustang coupe:

I think it's a

'68 Mustang
