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.

Spare tires

So, replacing a flat would involve removing the tire from the wheel and inserting an inner tube, putting a new tire in place and then pumping the tube up?

Although I have changed a few tires in my life (in the simpler manner) I've instructed my sons to call AAA since I no longer consider the variety of modern jacks and other factors safe enough to use without prior experience.

My new Porsche doesn't even have a spare tire. Call and have it towed in seems to be the idea.

Unlucky

Better spin that horseshoe around!

Nice Shop

My family has been in this business for 50 years. With some updated lifts and equipment this would be a nice facility by today's standards.

Did you not read the sign?!

Looks like the photographer came in through the back door.
