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.

Vintage photos of:
One view of the kitchen at my grandparents' house, 4645 Hazelbrook Avenue in Long Beach (now Lakewood), California, ca. 1939. 8x10" B&W print, on the back of which is stamped:
E. A. WILLIAMS
ANGELUS 14750 - L. A.
I would have guessed the picture was taken in the mid-1940's to early 50's, but the photographer - my great-grandfather Everett A. Williams - was killed in a car accident in 1940. View full size.
