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.

Rose Parade: 1961

From a large batch of found slides comes this Kodachrome slide of The Quaker Oats entry in the 1961 Rose Parade. The slide has a date stamp of Sept 61, since the parade is held in January I am presuming this was taken in January of 61 but the film wasn't developed until September. There are quite a few more images of this parade still to scan. View full size.
