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.

Work at Subic Bay: 1945

Work at Subic Bay: 1945

It must have been hot and sticky at Subic Bay, Philippines because these sailors, who are loading or unloading a truck, seem not to be in full uniform. Among the supplies they have are boat paddles, which don’t look real useful for them. Photographed by my father, a fellow sailor.

Subic Bay Volleyball: 1945

Subic Bay Volleyball: 1945

Sailors playing volleyball at the barracks on the naval base in Subic Bay, Philippines after the end of WWII. My father, who took this photo, was shipped there after the war ended in 1945 to maintain radar antennas.

The back of the photograph reads "Ella + Amos May 24 1902." The front is stamped in the lower right corner: "Wint, 629 Hamilton St. Allentown PA." Photographed by Robert W. Wint, president of the Lehigh Valley Section No. 7 Professional Photographers Society.

Deep South: 1969

Deep South: 1969

This snapshot was taken on a family trip to Florida in July 1969. I believe the transportation and accommodations from Ohio were a yellow Rambler Rebel wagon and an Apache pop up camper. With no air conditioning, of course.
