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.

Lucky Kid

How did you get to ride Topper?

All the best cowboys

The boy in front has cowboy eyes. Dreaming of mustangs and the Wild West while sitting on a donkey in Jersey.

C'mon kids!!

Smile for Pete's sake!

Predictable Copycat Comment

The donkey on the left is saying to the donkey on the right, "I bet these kids are gonna ride our asses all day!"

Like peanut butter and jelly

Jackasses and the Jersey shore go together just as well in 2010 as they did in 1901.

Coppertone Tan

Nothing worse than a sunburned ass.
