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.

Bat-Birthday: 1967

Bat-Birthday: 1967

Holy Dixie Cup, Batman! It's my nephew Jimmy's (in red shirt) seventh birthday Bat-party. Swoosh! There are four more gleeful Bat-celebrants on the other side of the Bat-table here in the suburban Batcave secretly located in Diamond Bar, California. Bat-scanned from the KodaBat-color Bat-negative shot by my Bat-sister. View full size.

Presenter

I love that kid second from the back who is presenting the cake. He's pretty awesome!

After Party

The boys would grab some bath towels and use them as capes while running around the yard yelling " nana nana nana BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!"

We Want More!

Hey tterrace, when you post one of these how about a "then and now" composite?

Inflation

I love those balloons. Were they hand decorated?

Bat-Balloons

That lipstick smooch balloon doesn't look very Batty.

Most pathetically-sized party hats

Ever.

Awesome

At first glance this looks exactly like the kitchen in my childhood home. Paneling-o-rama!

Paneling

I am sitting here at the computer in my house looking at the exact same style paneling as in the photo!

The Young Lady

Her expression says it all! A MasterCard moment?

Holy Party Favors, Batman!

From the back of the table it's Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson (the first Robin), the Riddler, and Catwoman.

I didn't know they were mixing it up so early in their lives!

Some People Don't Change

I still have my Bat-sister.

Ack!

The paneling in the background and the little girl in the foreground are horrifying!

Bat-T

Having had two sisters of my own, I recall they were not thrilled being called "bat" anything.
