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.

City Hall: 1965

City Hall: 1965

San Francisco City Hall on March 17, 1965. I was with friends to take in the St. Patrick's Day Parade and we apparently tooled around beforehand, giving me an opportunity to take this Kodachrome slide with its smattering of cars, some of them already classics. Back in 1956, Chryslers of that year with their big, luscious tail lights had been among my favorites, and here we have two of them. Among the others, an old bathtub Lincoln, a later-model Thunderbird and a smidgen of a Corvair. If you want to park here now, forget it. Later on at the parade, I took this shot featuring another car, and also a governor. View full size.
