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.

Hawaiian Punch Restaurant: 1967

Hawaiian Punch Restaurant: 1967

This picture was taken in 1967 at the San Diego SeaWorld. That's my dad in the middle and his sisters on the sides. They don't look like they're dressed to get splashed by Shamu. This commenter left a nice description of what the Hawaiian Punch restaurant behind them was like. View full size.

Hot weather, hot clothes

I think your father didn't feel comfortable himself. Because it was too hot probably. May be his clothes was not sutible for that day.

Wonderful picture of some properly attired children

Nowadays the kids would fat and wearing flipflops and wife-beaters. What a contrast!

Turtleneck

Turtleneck & blazer. Height of mid-sixties fashion. Plus Kodacolor blue skies and the ever-popular roll film edge fogging. Excellent!

Awwwww

They look so cute all dressed up to go out to dinner! I love your dad's turtleneck sweater! Very cute picture!
