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.

Guitar Lesson: 1959

Guitar Lesson: 1959

This is a great picture. My brother turned out to be an awesome guitar player; he repairs them too. The photo must have been shot around 1959 or so. My dad kept that guitar since his teen years and now my brother owns it. It's an old Gibson LG something or other; pretty beat, but it sounds great. View full size.
