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.

Mom, Mac, Me

Mom, Mac, Me

Hi, and thanks everyone for all the nice comments. I have never posted pictures on any website prior to Shorpy. What a place!

Anyway, here I am again with Mom. Presenting our big Persian cat Mac on the back patio. Sadly, Mac caught a skin disease called ringworm from being outside a lot. I am quite sure that there would be some lotion or simple treatment for it nowadays. Then there was no cure and he had to be put down. He was my buddy (so says my Mom). My memories of him are not as clear as I would like.

Thanks all. View full size.
