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.
Vintage photos of:
That's me with my parents at the North-South Carolina border in 1961. Dad was being transferred to Parris Island, S.C., from Camp Lejeune, N.C., to begin his first tour as a Marine Corps drill instructor. View full size.
An "instant relative". She was photographed by a Wantage, Oxfordshire photographer named Tom Reveley. The back of the picture contains the information: "Williams Mill St." View full size.
My uncle apparently took this Kodachrome as part of a photography class or maybe his own independent study. I'm guessing early 50's. View full size.
My grandpa Frank on the left, sometime in the 60's. Halloween party or just been drinking too much, I don't know. Not sure either what he would think of me putting up this picture on the Internet. Note back in the days when beer came in tin cans and the Tareyton cigarettes reference (though it's reversed here).
