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.

Community Pure Food Store

My grandfather took over the old family grocery in Honey Grove, Pa., in 1950 and opened his funeral home adjacent. He ran the store until around 1970, when competition from chain grocers finally got the best of the place. View full size.

J.M. Long's Store

This is the old family home in Honey Grove, Pennsylvania, seen here when it was J.M. Long's Store and Post Office (on the left side) and the home of Harvey and Grace Henry (on the right side). This later became my grandfather's store and funeral home. The building still stands, looking much worse, and is no longer in my family. The figures standing in front of the building are my great-great-grandmother and great-grandmother. View full size.
