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.

Two-Gun George: 1958

Two-Gun George: 1958

My brother George and I did not always see things from the same perspective. Nevertheless, we have remained good friends and genuinely liked each other over the years. In this photo he, age 3, is wearing a fancy two-gun cowboy belt. This 35mm Kodachrome slide was taken in Clinton, Iowa, in a two-story house on 3rd Street where our family lived on the lower floor. Exciting wall paper! View full size.

Tterrace is right!

I was just going to write a nearly identical post!

You and your brother remind me of my two sons. They are only a year apart in age, but the buzz haircuts and fancy holsters look just like ones they had! As teenagers, they still get along well.


I'll take that chair. What wonderful lines.

The 50s - what's not to like here?

Do you realize how many people today would kill for: 1) That wallpaper! 2) That chair; 3) That end table; 4) That lamp; 5) That cowboy belt & pistol set; 6) Two cute kids who get along with each other. I'll take 'em all. Well, except for the kids. Wonderful photo!
