Childhood makes me love love Shorpy.

Bless him--what a task!
"Life," "Look" and even the "Saturday Evening Post" were mostly pictorial mags when I was a small kid in the early 60's. And I believed a pic was worth a bunch.


I think there are similar signs in Congress.

Great Sign

I love the sign behind him. My motto for life... oops, that's a different publication.

Negaitve's size?

What is the size of negative? As for me, it's too large for 24x36 mm. But it seems too small for 60x90?

A Golden Era in Photography

I am a little surprised to see that almost all of these images seem to be 35mm. I would have expected more medium-format, and maybe some large-format, for this period. Still, I'm gratified to see so many of the photos seem to be well-exposed, well-composed and well-cropped in camera. The photographers here were real pros.

At First Glance

It looks like a coin store.

And now,

You could probably archive all those images on a couple of flash drives!

A Theme

Looks like they were getting ready for a story with a Jewish theme.

The Slide Viewer

Is the "Grid View" of Version 0.01 of Adobe LightRoom. Dan is using the "Loupe View" mode. The photos on the wall behind are the "Filmstrip View."


One of the hardest jobs in the world --- which picture best expresses the story being told? Hard to do.
